SP5206 : Oxford: punts from Magdalen Bridge

taken 10 years ago, near to Oxford, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

Oxford: punts from Magdalen Bridge
Oxford: punts from Magdalen Bridge
The moored punts are Oxford-style craft, with a deck at only one end and the floor of the punt extending all the way to the other end. The person propelling the vessel with a pole stands in the floor of the boat, the deck being at the front. Cambridge punts have a deck at each end - a small one at the front and a longer one on which the punter stands. To people used to standing on a deck whilst poling, an Oxford punt always seems to be going backwards.
See TL4458 : Cambridge: Clare College and the Cam for the Cambridge version.
