After the Deluge


In the aftermath of the heavy rain the river continues to rise and will continue to rise for a day or so. Red signs are out warning boats to stay put, and that means securing themselves with anchors. The pegs are in very soft ground.

The lock keeper is letting more water through at the weir. Water had found a way over the footpath at the top of the weir in any case.

All the gates are open at the weir.

Elsewhere, I see the museum is closed due to flooding of the basement. And in Steventon the fire engines were called to help pump away water.

As someone who used to live in beautiful Abingdon, I am very saddened to see these pictures. I wish everyone affected all the best.
