Oxford by a winter's night is breathtaking. Cobbles glisten in the brumal gloom, and streetlights flare through thick, caliginous air. From somewhere deep within the city, a solitary church bell reverberates off damp sandstone walls. A sense of adventure and mystery hangs in the mist, the feeling of being somewhere medieval, dark and invigorating, the feeling of being suspended with the city in time.
