I am an historian with a passion for the stories of people past and present. My love of Oxford began when I studied at Brasenose College, one of the 39 University colleges. I enjoy spending time here; staying on my narrowboat in Jericho, a vibrant suburb that extends along the Oxford Canal.
Come on a tour and let me share with you Oxford’s fascinating tales and curiosities. My special interests include art and architecture; ghosts and grizzly events; Harry Potter; Colin Dexter’s Morse; Lewis Carroll, Tolkien and CS Lewis; Oxford’s poets and writers; science and medicine; crime, punishment and policing; warfare including the civil wars; waterways and the story of women in Oxford.
