Circular Walk via Abingdon Weir and Lock

December 29, 2018

Circular Walk
There were some lovely clear reflections from the River Thames upstream from Abingdon Bridge.

Nearing Abingdon Weir the water got rougher. Lots of people were enjoying the walk, and riverside views.

and Lock makes a circular walk possible – along one bank and back along the other.

Next to the weir a stone reads:

THIS LOCKE WAS BVILDED BY
S. GEORGE STONEHOVSE AND
RICHARD ADAMS ANN. 1649

The stone is mounted in concrete. Since 1649. the weir has been reconstructed and repaired numerous times. I gather that the walkway across the weir was added during work in the 1960s.
