PUNTING is still such a wonderful part of this city’s fabric – and we do it properly, unlike those oiks in Cambridge. So it is not surprising Google Maps has put the route between Magdalen and Wolfson colleges on its Internet service.

Pro punter Patrick Montgomery is quite right that it would take ages, so we’re not limbering up to do the route just yet, but now the weather has turned (hopefully) it’s time again to spend a bit more time messing about on the river.
