A very early start - 0545 (see below). It was warm and sunny and we were in Newbury for 1100.

I managed to get a picture of a train speeding on its way to London at Little Bedwyn. I wasn't quick enough to get the downline one which is even closer to the lock.

Several years ago we were travelling up the Grand Union and came upon a group of lockwheelers charging boaters for their services up and down the three locks (forget which ones). Many were dressed in old boaters' gear so I used this photo to make a basic card - a photo matted and that is all.

David has also used the photo in one of his articles in Canals and Rivers!
