I would like to write something on the English countryside but am really confused. Jerome.K.Jerome's Three Men on a Boat has left me quite puzzled about the rivers of England. I'm not talking about the geography. The author writes that a man could walk in a river and had to do it in single file. Are the riveres so narrow?

Moved to research.

And English rivers aren't narrow.

English rivers are just like all other rivers around the world. Except our ducks go, 'Quack quack, wot.'

Meh, rivers???
I'm confuzzled. They're not that wide....but it depends on what you class as 'wide'.
How the hell did I get onto this anyhow!!!!!
