Boathouse and Boats
Here is a map to show you the location of our boathouse (also
called Longbridges Boathouse). It is on the South side of
Oxford accessible by foot or by bike from the towpath which runs from
Folly bridge in the centre of Oxford to Donnington bridge and
beyond. To arrive by car, you must start from the roundabout near
the Redbridge Park and ride at the Southern end of the Abingdon Road.
This is between the A34 interchange and the "Sainsbury's" roundabout.
You drive towards the city centre on the Abingdon Road and then
turn right at the 2nd set of traffic lights after the roundabout.
This takes you along Weirs Lane and over Donnington Bridge. Then
take the first left after the bridge. The carpark is 2nd left and
has a nominal gate and is fairly muddy. From there you walk back
over the bridge and turn left at a footpath which takes you down onto
the towpath. Keep walking with the river to your right until you
cross over two small bridges and there is the boathouse.
Members - please let Juliet have photos of your boats and any
text you would like included.
