   The Mark

I decided that I would make The Mark my first post in this Round and About series. I chose this as I could remember photographs I had taken for an earlier post and there didn't seem to be much information about it online. It's not marked on my ♉Navigator roadmap for example at 1.5 miles to the inch which is usually a brilliant map. Also although it is nearer to the Thames at Henley [10km] and Wallingford [15km] its still in easy reach from the South Oxford Canal [40km] so this gave me the excuse to open pages for my first two waterways as well.

Of course when I tried to find my earlier post about it, I couldn't, for the simple reason that I had not done one. There still seemed to be good reasons for carrying on with it so pics from 2007 are appended below the internet links.

   The Mark


   Josie always liked a stick to carry, preferably a BIG one.

  I remember being especially pleased about this stick as I had designs on it for the woodburner at home. Whenever we went out for a walk though, somehow as we approached the car she would surreptitiously drop the log she was carrying and I never got one home to burn no matter how closely I watched her towards journey's end.
