Trip Report England revisited 34 years on. Part 3, Final Highlights.

Jump to last reply

Royal Henley Regatta, The Rosetta Stone, Abingdon on Thames and my Conclusion.
This is the final part (of three) of my report of our first extended visit to the Oxford region, since I left Abingdon 34 years ago. At that time, Britain was one of the foremost technological advanced countries in the world. It also had a rich, traditional heritage, full of pomp and ceremony and its country villages oozed old world charm.
So going back to my old stomping grounds near Oxford was not only to see how the region had fared, but also to see if that special feeling we experienced in being part of the English way of life as a permanent resident for 10 years still remained. The illustrated report is given in http://www.artphototravel.net/2012/07/england-revisited-34-years-on-part-33/ which includes images and a map.
