Ragged Ramblers Parkour!

For many months now, training in conditions of the utmost secrecy, members of The Ragged Society of Antiquarian Ramblers have been honing their skills as accomplished proponents of Parkour: "a method of movement focused on moving around obstacles with speed and efficiency". 

Here, we are able to share with you the fruits of this intensive programme of preparation. When questioned about this, Society member Munro Tweeder-Harris Esq. responded thus:

"It was well wicked, innit! One feels well good when one is doing this excretia. Huzzah!"

WARNING! Please do not attempt to replicate these moves without professional instruction

PS We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Munro Tweeder-Harris' nephew, Tristram, who was kind enough to act as a consultant with regard to the 'street' vernacular speech, which Members are currently mastering.
