    ... it was rather nice again.

    The biggest problem with the rain was that it meant there was nowhere to sit, and standing at the back of the boat seems rather odd when you aren't in control of the tiller, plus Carrie moans that she can't see round me.

Its the end of the well dressing season in the Peaks District – a very ancient custom where village wells and water sources are honoured by erecting pictures made out of natural materials (flowers, petals, leaves, twigs, seeds, bark, stones, etc) into panels filled with clay. ...
