SP5213 : The Ray joins the Cherwell

taken 9 years ago, near to Islip, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

The Ray joins the Cherwell
The Ray joins the Cherwell
The River Ray on the left flows into the Cherwell over this moveable gate structure operated by the Environment Agency. After heavy rain, levels in the Cherwell can be higher than in the Ray, and water will back up in the Ray. This structure offers some degree of control, but the area is still liable to flooding.
Flows are measured here using ultrasonic sensors which you can see mounted on the walls by the gauge boards.
