Re: OXFORD

I'll join the bus if there's a bus. But it looks like it'll be taxis ad hoc, or sober drivers, given responses so far.

Tony Miles

Stocky, barrel-chested, with a fine head crowned with grey curls, Tony Miles had the looks of a Roman emperor. But, as Tony and Peter both observe, he was a most approachable, modest and helpful man; and, unlike Julius Caesar (as far as we know) a genius in wood and varnish. His Canoes were works of...
