­­­­­Words, drawing and photograph have equal significance in this work. They record and describe a walk based on the length of the River Avon in the west of England. The blue pencil records the passage of the river. The photograph above shows the point at which the Roman road, the Fosse Way, crosses the river.

Different degrees of time are implied: the frozen moment at the crossing point, the period of time taken for the artist to walk eighty-four miles and the longer historical time during which one of the most important communication links of Roman Britain declined to a small earth track.
