Ride to Bloxham and Adderbury

Since getting my bike I have hardly ridden it.  I was going to ride last Sunday, but a friend fell off his bike on black ice (he limped into the tea rooms on Sunday morning), so I decided against it, and then I shut my finger in the back hatch which led to surgery and a glove-unfriendly-bandage.  I had the bandage re-done on Friday and the nurse, on request, kindly did a glove shaped one, so finally on Saturday I was able to climb into my leathers and set off on the Oxfordshire roads.

I decided to go to Bloxham as it was included in a tour guide. Mark came along on his Panther to set the pace.  I wasn’t too amazed by Bloxham,; perhaps because the internet pictures are so good but I thought the piano and Organ made a good sound; I am always delighted when the instruments aren’t locked up and are available for people to play (unlike St Helens… oh dear, am I STILL going on about St Helens!?).  Mark suggested we ride on to Adderbury to look at the church there. The exterior carvings are super.

Those are wonderfully vile! I think your favourite is playing an organistrum or something like that.

I thought it was one of these but I think you are right! Either way, I don't think I have seen an instrument played so enthusiastically before, and especially not in a carving!
