Hi Ken...and I was the one pushing Janet's wheelchair in Lewis! Yes it was a great experience - our whole visit was, and Janet has summed it up pretty well.

Also worth noting that when we were there, the Tourist Info Bureau had several booklets on Morse locations and Morse walks you could do.

Also there I believe there are still Morse Tours being run where you can hop aboard a bus and have a guided tour of Morse locations, hopping on and off at various places.

One place realy worth visiting - just a short bus ride from the city, is the Trout Inn at Wolvercote. The characters 'drank' there often - as did cast and crew when off duty. You get to see the river (and nearby bridge) where the Wolvercote Tongue was found.

If you're there, ask if Dennis Fogle is around. He used to own/manage the place and when Janet and I were there he was there just there helping out - though he is no longer in charge. A very friendly and interesting person to talk to, with great stories of meeting cast, crew and Colin Dexter.
