Punting is synonymous with Oxford and no visit to the city is complete without a trip along the Cherwell past the famous Botanic Gardens, Christ Church College Meadows and the Magdalen School rose gardens, heading towards the Isis (Oxford's name for the River Thames) and further afield. A guided punt tour is perfect for many, but for the brave, only taking control and being master of one’s own craft will do. Full instructions on how to do so, for absolute beginners and improvers, are given in this book.

“Edward, Prince of Wales, who had been taught to punt by Haines of old Windsor, was said to have punted very well when at Oxford in 1912, and to have been shown a route to climb in his college, Magdalen, using a punt.”

Contained within are chapters on the full history punting in Oxford, techniques of punting and a general history of the punt – each reproduced from RT Rivington’s 1983 classic Punting: Its History and Techniques.
