It was early closing at 6pm at Tesco on Easter Monday. Anybody going back by bike or foot had to think twice before going along by the River Ock.
The River Ock had burst its banks and so the Marcham Road was the only route.
Beyond the Drayton Road the River Ock was running fast. It was within its banks, and so there does not look like any danger to properties.
One sporting event has been cancelled. The Head of the River rowing event, planned for Sunday, 8th April, has been cancelled with great regret. The River Thames usually reaches a high water mark 2 or 3 days after the River Ock, and even if the River were row-able by next Sunday the fields would be too wet to take cars with trailers.
