Thanks to Steve King for the first two pictures The first is of “Townsend” in South Abingdon. Steve says “Little wonder it flooded, the front gardens on one side of the entire road have been paved over, the water has nowhere to go !”
The second was taken this morning on Nags Head Island, and shows the narrow boat “Queen of Hearts” has sunk. It had lost its rear mooring a couple of weeks back when part of the bank gave way. It was moored again but sadly things have gone wrong and the consequences have been more severe.
The River Thames is no longer as high as during its peak in January but more rain over the last week has seen the River rise again. Many fields are still underwater like these looking from Peep-o-Day Lane towards Didcot Power Station.
The Marina Park is still an island. It may well have been cut off since Christmas.
