SU5391 : The Ladygrove Ditch

The Ladygrove Ditch
The Ladygrove Ditch
Looking a bit down at heel here with a low water level and dead reeds, the Ladygrove Ditch is a natural stream rising from small springs in the Upper Greensand around the east side of Didcot.
The channel has been extensively re-contoured through this urban district to contain increased run off from all the new building on former farmland, but at least the stream isn't in a concrete trough or completely covered over as would have happened in less environmental days.
The houses are on Weycroft and Beaulieu Mews, off Blackwater Way, following the local theme of naming all the streets after rivers.
