A Brief History

Starting with the immortal entry below "The Balcony" has grown both in renown and verbosity, mentioned or at least obscurely referred to in all four corners of the empire and The Reading Canoe Club Gossip Section - 17th July 2003. It started life as "The River to Nottingham" but as Nottingham came and went (with much success) and the blogg continued its name needed to change
