Report on Overnight Stay in Oxford October 2018
Back in October, thirty-three U3A members set off by coach for a One Night Stopover to Oxford. The group packed a lot into two days visiting beautiful Cliveden, magnificent Blenheim Palace, Bladon to see Winston Churchill's grave, Oxford (including a tour with Blue Badge Guides) and Hughenden Manor. Thank you to Sandra McDonald for all the hard work entailed in organising an overnight stay.
These are some photos from the trip last October to Cliveden, Blenheim Palace and Oxford.
