Ballad of the A40

Four weeks ago, when I started my latest freelancing stint in Abingdon, if you'd have told me that the A40 between Junction 8 of the M40 and Oxford was in any way romantic, I would have scoffed. But that all changed last week. Heading west on Friday with the sun rising in my rear view mirror, this came on the radio:

Cowley and the Oxford ring road will never be the same again. Well, not 'til tomorrow anyway.


  1. I always loved the M40 between High Wycombe and Oxford, the road to freedom and debauchery!

  2. Both roads will be rebranded forthwith.

    I've enjoyed my sojourn down here, for the most part, but it's time to go home now.
