York City 1 Oxford Utd 1

This weekend we have been to York. It is a city both of us visited many years ago but don't know very well at all. We have stayed in a B&B in Clifton & when we arrived yesterday soon discovered we were near the River Ouse & the Clifton Ings which are a large open space very like Port Meadow only five minutes walk. A quick splash in the river for the dogs We then went for some sightseeing, this is York Art Gallery You can walk along much of the old city walls so we went for a wander
Our first views on the minster
A turret on the walls
One of the many city gates

The main reason for the visit was that Oxford United were playing York today & having seen a 1-1 at Barrow a couple of weeks ago we again saw the U's come away with a point in a 1-1 draw,(no beach balls in this game though!)
