At Miles Cross they must bide

This is very charming in itself (and occurred on a road I often drive down), but I put it here because the combination of an escaped horse and a string quartet is so very, very Fire and Hemlock. Needless to say, the quartet are travelling in the direction of Bristol, or possibly as far as Burnt Norton...

ETA: The escaped horse is not visible in this picture, but it's what caused the traffic jam, and thus the jamming.

ETA2: From the Telegraph: 31-year-old Lu Jeffery, of Portishead, near Bristol, said: "It was a lovely moment, one the quartet will treasure. Between us, we have played some of the most incredible concert venues globally and the one afternoon you play the M5 it all goes crazy."

A very Portishead thing to say.
