Godstow Nunnery ruins today

All that remains of Godstow Nunnery are these ruins, in Oxford’s northern suburbs, just up the Thames. Its hospice, built in 1138, survives today as the Trout Inn (at bottom), which puts in appearances in the Inspector Morse TV series.  Rosamond's home town of Clifford is further west, near Hay-on-Wye, by the Welsh border.
