CSCC Reports 2005: River Wandle, 09 January 2005
With the north of England and Wales under flood water, what did we get? A rather dry river Wandle. Better that than a beheading - but slightly disappointing nonetheless. Wandle virgins were Bridget, Martin, Diane and Dan, and David P, Hilary and Peter, Chris and Richard also paddled. A pleasant afternoon's trip despite the graunchy levels. No stone-throwing yoofs for once. Interesting that, arriving at Wandsworth just after high tide on the Thames, headroom at the end of the shopping centre tunnel was alarmingly less than usual ... a point for the future.
