Canal, Castle and Chapel Walk

Loading Events

A 90-minute linear walk with local historian, author, and former long-term canalboat resident Mark Davies, encompassing Oxford’s Saxon-origin castle and adjacent suburb of St Thomas: the historical hub of the city’s brewing industry and the domicile of generations of Oxford’s important and sometimes controversial  boating families. A subterranean stream; some extraordinary Victorian railway engineering; Oxford’s current residential boating community, and the story of an innovative floating chapel will all feature in a walk which will conclude near the 1790 terminus of the Oxford Canal, one of Britain’s first four trunk canals.

Tickets cost £10 per person  and are available from the MOX Gift Shop or buy online (booking fee applies).
