Bright sunny crisp day, too cold (for me) to go far today so just a gentle trundle.
This ancient bridge spans Swift Ditch close to its confluence with the Thames. Swift Ditch is a back water of the main stream and cut the long corner of the river as it flows through Abingdon. The land between the ditch and the main river is called Andersey Island. When the river returns to a more normal level I’ll go to the take off for the ditch. The foot bridge in the distance is known as Donkey Bridge and forms part of the Thames Footpath.
Main river slowly dropping back in level. Still plenty of frosty grass despite the bright sun.
Down at lower level, side view of Abingdon Bridge.
This is in the village of Sunningwell, I’ve been meaning to take this shot for ages and finally got there.
From here it was a case of trying to avoid the masses of roadworks we seem to have and the frozen puddles on the untreated lanes.
