The River Stour at Christchurch
This frequently photographed view is looking towards Christchurch Quay. The green area in the middle distance is known as The Quomps. According to Christchurch Museum, the word "quomps" is a local corruption of the two words "quagmire" and "swamps". The area used to be wet and marshy, but has been reclaimed.
