Cold Harbour is an area in Oxford at the junction between Abingdon Road and Donnington Bridge Road

‘A “cold harbour” was an uninhabited shelter for travellers, often along a well-known route, somewhat similar to a modern bothy. Unlike an inn, there were no staff, food or drink to be had. There would be a roof, door and possibly a simple hearth, although it was the traveller’s responsibility to gather fuel. They were generally little more than open-faced barns or animal shelters.’ (Wiki)

Recorded in Oxford in 2010
