Too high, you can't get over it; too low, you can't get under it; too wide, you can't get round it.

Who would want to watch a Royal Wedding when they can traverse Wales in search of a massive reservoir and dam?

If I had a pound for every time I'd featured a stile in A Sunday Picture, well I'd have a pound.
