Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’…

Those familiar with Cambridge will know the rollers which allow you to move the very heavy punts between the lower and upper river.

Last week some of us decided to ride the punt down the rollers, which I’ve done many times before, but they seemed to be rolling rather better than in the past, and you can’t steer the thing as you’re going…


Many thanks to Sarah McKeon for the photo…

I remember doing that at midnight and getting pushed into the river by the willow that faces the rollers 🙁
