Follow the rabbit Neo

Westcott, originally uploaded by Neorelix.

Ok, so it's a misquote. And it's not a rabbit. But i still couldn't resist. Boring pics today today but of one of my favourite places. When you visit you have to come and find this hare. He stands guard outside the doors of Westcott House theological college in Jesus Lane. Again, a doorway you'd normally walk past but you'd be the poorer for doing so. Step inside and you find an oasis of serenity filled with resplendant borders, effervescent flora and age-wizened trees. Birds sing, insects buzz - all that malarkey - and within a stone's throw of the city centre. I love it; I always drag unsuspecting visitors round here. Scenes like this, seemingly robbed from history, are the norm. I want to see Miss Haversham waiting here - but without the cobwebs...
