A Trip to Town

Now that we live in a village to the south of Abingdon, anything we need that is not stocked in the local shop means we have to travel to either Abingdon or Didcot.

Today’s trip out was to Abingdon, as the weather dry though fresh I was able to a turn a six mile return journey into a nine round trip via some of the local lanes.

As this will be my last challenge photo for September I thought I would take the above of the historic Abingdon Bridge, There are actually two bridge which connect to the wooded Nags Heads Island where the boats are moored left of centre.
Wikipedia informed me that construction commence in 1414 and was completed in 1422.

From here it was a bit struggle back into a stiff headwind.

    Great photo, and to think that bridge is nearly 600 years old!
