On Saturday 6th June 2009, Katy Beinart and the Oxford Psychogeography Society presented a psychogeographical tour around central Oxford, discovering the area once known as Paradise. Participants were given maps dating from the 14th to 20th century and asked to jointly decide a route, and find traces of Paradise Gardens, the gardens of the Greyfriars who had occupied the area in the 13th and 14th centuries. When traces were found, participants were asked to read a text from a random selection in sealed envelopes provided by the Society, and place a flower at the site to mark its former occupancy.
