I'm confused too. Bridge 78 is at Barby, and the number couldn't be mistaken for that of a lock because the Oxford hasn't got 78 locks.

Maybe one of those wide beams that aren't supposed to be on the north Oxford is out and about.  Please note I don't have an issue with wide beams per se but on this part of the network??

There is one particular chump in a grey one who's preference seems to be mooring in the narrowest places, opposite overhanging trees, reedbeds and the like. Oh, and his daft windows open outwards from the bottom, further narrowing the gap!

That bridge seems to be a favourite of the magnet fishers, for some reason. Maybe something explosive or incriminating came up?

No, that is a much later revival, a hit in 1986. The Shangri-Las' was the original, and hit the "hit parade", as it then was, in 1964.
