A lot of other sporting events have been called off. I don’t expect  to see any boats out today.

    This is the first time in over 30 years that I have seen the River Thames frozen over in 30 years. the kids out there take picture on your phones, blackberrys and i pods, you might not see it again for many many years to come! Mind you 30 years ago new bikes and skateboards were the must have xmas pressie!

    The Thames was also frozen over when we walked along Wilsham road at 7am on Monday 20th December, with the air temperature down at a low of -12deg.
    Ice flows were evident as we walked back later that morning – It being slightly warmer !

    The quality of the photographs appearing on this site is always good, but some outstanding shots have been posted while the snow has been with us.

    There is a vintage picture from over 100 years ago in the Museum of people ice skating on the river Thames in Abingdon. (well there was 10 years ago) Apparently someone drove a horse and cart from one side to the other to prove it was safe to go on!!!
