Recent snow-melt had caused flooding in the valley. There was a bitter east wind and occasional flurries of fine snow whipping across the flood-plain, so you could scarcely make out Hampton Gay across the river.
The field beyond the canal is part of the flood-plain of the Cherwell; the main channel of the river is marked by the line of trees at the far end of that field.
River Cherwell
The River Cherwell is a major tributary of the River Thames. It rises near Hellidon in Northamptonshire and flows south through Oxfordshire for 40 miles to meet the Thames at Oxford.
