Road reopens and harvest begins at Rye Farm

The road to Abingdon Lock and nearby buildings and farmland reopened yesterday after a few weeks when the road was resurfaced.

The road is now available to tractors and other vehicles used to harvest wheat in the adjacent field where work began today.

The combine harvester cuts down the crop, separates the grain from the stalks and every so often shoots the grain into an adjacent tractor-trailer.
