There was a sign near St Helen’s Church trying to stop motorists going towards the Iron Bridge in the wrong direction. Traffic heading from South Abingdon is allowed over the bridge one way. The road is too narrow in two places for anything more.
There are two bridges connecting South Abingdon with the north, and the the other bridge on Drayton Road is closed overnight for resurfacing work. So traffic heading south had to find another way round.
But a lot of cars, going south, were risking going the wrong way over the Iron Bridge. That led to some tooting of horns.
When the police arrived they told several car drivers off for coming over the Iron Bridge the wrong way. They then started turned cars back before they could break the law.
Full moon tonight. There have been two full moons this calendar month. Thanks to Peter, from Abingdon Camera Club, who sent me this picture
