As we moan and complain about our cars getting stuck on our modern roads in snow, it's appropriate, in my opinion, to remember how fortunate we are and that even in the 1930s there were still many, many roads that looked like this track across Richmond Park. What have we lost? What have we gained?
It's not surprising that Napoleon, and after him, Hitler, had a problem. I'm glad I wasn't there. I'm pleased every time I see a helicopter and a heavy haulage machine.
