Happy Christmas from the WW team

Christmas is a time for peace and contemplation, but there's been precious little of that in the WW office over the last week as we rush to get the first issue of the New Year ready for the printers. Yet we're still hoping to get the chance for a little festive boating and towpath walking... deadlines permitting!

In amongst all this, we've uploaded several months' worth of articles from 2001. There are hundreds more ready to go in the New Year, covering much of the past eight years of WW. We'll also be adding new features to the site such as our regular 'Picture of the Day' feature, so do stay tuned.

To all our readers, very best wishes of the season.
