St Helens Wharf blocked and more storm damage by the River Ock

October 28, 2013

Going to bed the wind was not very strong; neither was it on waking. But during the night there must have been a storm.

St Helen’s Wharf is currently blocked by a tree, and traffic is being diverted until it can be cleared.

There is also a large willow split and fallen near Meadowside, beside the River Ock, and a lot of smaller branches, and a small tree beside.

    how can this be allowed to happen – ban these evil trees at once!

    …it’s the councils fault! None of this would have happened if we had the same shops as Didcot.

    Let’s hope it doesn’t take as long to clear St Helen’s Wharf as it has to sort out the road through Bagley Wood (10 months+ so far, forecast 2014).

    I talked to the trees…but they didn’t listen to me…….

    It didn’t take long – it was passable by 11am when I went past. Looked like it was Town Council staff clearing it, so well done.
