An outline view in ink of Magdalen College Grove, taken from the bridge, drawn by S.H. Grimm. The Universal British Directory of 1791, comments of Magdalen College, "Through the centre of this building we pass into the grove, or paddock, which is formed into many delightful walks and lawns, and flocked with about thirty or forty head of deer.
No college enjoys a more agreeable or extensive environ. Besides the grove just mentioned, there is a meadow, within the college precincts, consisting of about thirteen acres, surrounded by a pleasant walk called the water-walk. The whole circuit of the walk is washed by branches of the Cherwell, and has many pretty rural prospects, one of which, from the east, commands the new bridge."
