Oxford Canal, Brownsover
Oxford Canal, Brownsover
The canal has frozen solid and no boats will be moving for the time being. Note the group of teenagers on the opposite bank, some of whom are walking on the canal itself. The harsh winter of 1962/3 froze the canal network for several weeks and was one of the factors that finally killed off commercial carrying - today's pleasure boaters can afford to simply wait until their boats are movable again.
