Last night we were woken by a thunderstorm at 0315. Perhaps that explains why I'm feeling tired now (or it just might be that my strength has been sapped by working Jubilee down 13 big GU locks in blistering heat, having had to turn all but one and going down on our own).
But back to this morning. Andy gave me a guided tour of Montgomery, aka The Jam Butty. It didn't take long. I saw his ingenious method for raising the floor to any of three other heights, done so as to enable trading at eye-level with customers. Andy explains on his blog.
