Looking east from Bascote Road at works to improve flood defences at Long Itchington. The original course of the River Itchen (left of photo) is being diverted 25 metres south (right of photo) to make room for a wider higher embankment to protect the village. As well as realignment of the river, the scheme includes repairs to concrete flood defence walls and the establishment of a wetland nature reserve. The scheme is being carried out by the Environment Agency and work started in August 2009.
