Walked past the Nags Head today and the new tenants have started work on refurbishing the premises so it looks as though the pub will be given a new lease of life.

The inscription on the Obelisk reads:
IN MEMORY OF EDGAR GEORGE WILSON WHO, IN RESCUING TWO BOYS FROM DROWNING, LOST HIS LIFE, JUNE 15, 1889, AGED 21 YEARS
ERECTED UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE OXFORD YOUNG MEN’S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION, BY PUBLIC SUBSCRIPTION. UNVEILED NOVEMBER 7 BY THE MAYOR
OF OXFORD WALTER GRAY ESQ.
The plane that crashed was a competition version of the Bristol-Coanda Monoplane purchased by the War Office as trainers. The crash led to a five month ban on the flying of all monoplanes by the military wing of the Royal Flying Corps (established only five months earlier)and was caused by one of the bracing wires on the wings becoming detached. The plane was built by the British and Colonial Aeroplane Company.
