    ... too quickly. The water rushed in, hit the back gate and I went shooting forward into the front gate. Reverse wasn't quite strong enough to stop it. Going down, with the lock emptying is much quicker but has its own tricky bits - keep forward of the cill. If the stern of the boat gets caught on this you can imagine what happens! One sunk boat! There are scary diagrams at each lock. I've posted a photo of it. We went through Somerton Lock, ...

    ... by one of the porters. But it never made it to the office. A mystery! We were all laughing about it, because how do you lose a mattress? But really it is bad because obviously it was expensive and now the mom is trying to get her money back.

    ... an hour or two there very enjoyably as long as you have at least a mild interest in archaeology. If you enjoy Time Team on the ABC, you'll quite enjoy the Ashmolean.

    Found my way back to the station to catch the 5pm train, only to discover that a train had broken down, as luck would have it, only metres away from the platform.

    ... on our route. This was very cool and so much more impressive than we all thought- this was worthy of a full day of time, although we could only spend a few hours. We definitely didn't see everything. We had to get moving as we had to be in Banbury by 4-6pm for arrival at our Bed and Breakfast - Uplands House. Far into the country this is a beautiful home beside a farm. We were greeted by the proprietor, Poppy Cooksy, who showed us ...
