|Trees hide the world from the river traveller on the Ouse|
Today it was the tidal Ouse, a river which makes the Trent look positively exciting. In 15 miles and two and a half hours there was little but trees to see. Scarcely a house, let alone a village popped its head up to look at us. The only exception being the little village of Cawood with its elderly but still operational swingbridge nine miles in.
