River Thames - Cross Channel Route


Looking downstream from Abingdon Weir is like looking out from the back of a cross channel ferry.

Above the Weir the surface of the water shows barely a ripple.

Greater Celandine grows on the banks.

In some places the river widens, to form pools, and water-lilies can be found off the main navigation path.

All is calm apart from Swift Ditch. It once was the main navigation route, but nowadays is probably best avoided by all but canoes.

• Nice beautiful pictures of River Thames – Cross channel route. Crossing the channel reminds me of cross channel ferry travel from UK to France. Could you recommend any cheap ferries to France?
