옥스포드 시 중심에서 약 45분정도 – 걸어서 – 떨어져 있지만 가장 유명한 pub 입니다. 사진처럼 한여름 강 옆에 앉아 맥주 한잔 마시면서 아름다운 경치를 즐기는 것도 매력적일 겁니다.
주위를 어슬렁 거리는 여러 동물을 보실 수 있습니다. 공작, 해오라기, 백조, 오리 등등…
[#M_ Rosamund The Fair 에 관한 귀신 이야기...| less.. |Probably the most tragic tale of an Oxford ghost is that of Rosamund the Fair. King Henry II was deeply in love with the Nun who lived in Godstow Nunnery, which lies on the opposite bank of Trout Island. It was built in 1133, and was consecrated in 1179 by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the presence of King Henry II.
It is said that the King kept his concubine in a secret garden that was protected by a labyrinth and guarded by one of his knights. The knight held the end of a silver thread which lead to Rosamund. The Queen was very jealous and killed the knight, stole the thread and when she caught up with Rosamund killed her by making her drink from a poisoned chalice.
Now Rosamund haunts the Trout pub Wolvercote. She is often seen as a shadowy figure sneaking around in the awnings.
