Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding.

I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop...
It was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

LMS Oxford Pilgrimage report

I posted recently about the LMS Oxford Pilgrimage of a fortnight ago. I have now had a chance to look at Joe Shaw's reorts on his LMS Chairman's blog and they can be found here and here. These combine pictures and an account of the day.
