I wanted to go rowing on the River Severn near Bewdley, and the person who hired out the boats said, “No, it’s too rough.” You know, “It’s not safe to go out.” And I made such a pest of myself that my father said, “All right. You know, we will go out.” And it proved to be dangerous and frightening but that’s an instance of the determination I had to try to do things, and later on if there was any opportunity to climb a mountain, or to go ballooning, or some adventurous activity, I would always be keen to do it. And, it’s perhaps fortunate that nothing ever went wrong, but my discovery in Bath was of the countryside. I loved the countryside. I cycled, from the age of sort of 10 to 15, all around Bath and Somerset and Cheddar Gorge, and the sites of castles and country houses. And I remember that as a time of freedom, often perhaps a bit solitary, but great excitement of discovery and exploration.
