  • Russell

    Is there free parking in town nearby please?

    April 7, 2014

    • John M.

      Terry's right Russ, the ONLY free parking in Oxford, is on a Manopoly board, in Toys R Us. If i still had a car, what i'd do is have a look along the Botley Road? Have a look where PC World is (and is there another retail park, whose name escapes me at the mo) and try there? May be free? May be limited to two hours or something? Good luck! :-0

      April 14, 2014

    • Julie H

      Careful parking in the retail park as Aldi and Toys R Us have a notice now saying that the parking is for their clients only and you could get fined!...not sure how they find out though. I used to park there instead of paying for the Park n Ride.. people get wise to it. However the PnR at Seacourt is on £2 for 24 hrs now.

      April 14, 2014

  • John M.

    Hi Jo, not that bothered about the chocolate, so i'll see you (all) by the Folly Bridge/Head of the River at 11:45. LUNCH PLEASE! ;-)

    Its 4 miles from The Head of the River to the Plough via the river and Port Meadow. You can choose to walk back via the canal/river to Oxford or the bus which is 5 mins walk from the pub :))
    Due to the large numbers eating we will need to order in advance. I'll update you all in due course....
