News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Some photos of the canoes taken at Farleigh when we launched them for the first time.The backgrounds are of interest showing what was on the west bank at the time,some friends of my parents had a small cabin cruiser moored here at this time in the mid 60s

Wasn't sure where to place this, it's an article I wrote for the British Canoe Union magazine back in 1968 about a canoe trip down the River Medway.
