Open Country on Radio 4 this morning, followed the path of the River Wandle.

Couldn't discern the rich tones of his Hanson (or YC's Mauriat) wafting across the meadows, but I'm sure they were there somewhere, offering protection to the BBC for safe passage through I guess.

Did mention motorbikes and trolleys being dumped, no zimmers though.

Not on iplayer yet,

Alerted after the event by OG, he tells me there is a shortened version on Thursday at 1330. I shall look for the i-player version as well.
The only thing I've ever played by the Wandle was football - in Beddington Park, which was a home pitch for my school's old boys' football club. Too wild a clearance could put the ball in the river. We solved the retrieval dilemma with a simple rule - you put it in, you get it out, opposition included!

A gunboat. hurrah!
As one of only two people who have sailed on the River Effra in a tin bath I feel well qualified as a naval architect. We could have it steam powered and take a steam bleed to power a caliope.
