SU4996 : River Thames, confluence with River Ock

taken 39 years ago, near to Abingdon, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

River Thames, confluence with River Ock
River Thames, confluence with River Ock
Just downstream of here was the junction with the Wilts and Berks Canal, which formerly ran westward for some 52 miles to a junction with the Kennet and Avon Canal at Semington. It has been derelict for many years now and much of the route, especially near Swindon, has been built on. That, however, has not prevented the formation of a society for its restoration. This will be a gargantuan task.
