The New River Ray in the foreground marks the western edge of Otmoor, an unusual area of fenland between Oxford and Bicester.
This is a typical view showing one of the numerous drains, and the hills which surround the moor in the distance.
The drainage regime is quite complicated and not always successful, with the slow flowing River Ray, a tributary of the Cherwell, at times unable to deal with flows. This winter (2011/12) has been a dry one and water levels are low, but the moor is frequently very waterlogged.
