King’s College Record

Feb 1880

Of late walking by the short way into Windsor has been very bad; for several days it was almost impossible to go along the part of the road which passes the Three Elms, without slipping over the steep bank, as it was one glib sheet of ice.

On Tuesday evening a large number were present at the Rink in Windsor, it being the last band-night before lent; we were glad to see many of the students there enjoying themselves. The Rink has not been much frequented this winter, it seems a great pity that more do not take the advantage of healthy recreation afforded them.
