June Roof: Dreaming Spires

Oxford spires

“That sweet city with her dreaming spires”

This is Oxford and some of its renowned spires dotted about the rooftops. The phrase “dreaming spires” is from a poem by Matthew Arnold with its lines describing a view of Oxford: “And that sweet city with her dreaming spires,/ She needs not June for beauty’s heightening.”
