    Many thanks for that offer.
    Leaving the Kettering water stop would be a useful 15 minutes warning for those at Harringworth viaduct (despite the poor angle of the light if on time).

    I spoke to SD earlier and said I wished to transfer to another tour. They agreed, no questions asked. Excellent service!
