Well, following my looking into "pram covers" there were some great comments on the blog. I had a discussion with my brother the other night about waterproofs (he's a hiker) and I'm now thinking maybe we were under-estimating the English weather.
We had thought that if it was raining we'd just stay put, but I see Paul and Elaine below had the same thought - before arriving in the UK! It seems we need to have a re-think on the matter.
I couldn't imagine how well you'd be able to see through the plastic window of a pram hood, and the nuisance of having to take it down for low bridges makes us wonder if it would be worth it. There seems to be so many votes for waterproofs and a good umbrella that we'll just stick with that plan and see how we go!
