Another little River walk - April and May .. Dry and Wet...

is a backwater of the River Thames
 in the west of Oxford, England. It is 5.5 km long.
This was in April on a Sunny Day..


Looking from the Oxford Canal towards Jericho,
with the campanile tower of St Barnabas Church in the background

May Walk in the Rain ..
Not a lot of activity on the river today ...
they have all moored up for the day.

I have the  one below photographed in April too .. 

is a 78-mile-long (126 km) narrow canal
 in central England linking Oxford with Coventry via Banbury and Rugby. It connects with the River Thames at Oxford, to the Grand Union Canal at the villages of Braunston and Napton-on-the-Hill, and to the Coventry Canal at Hawkesbury Junction in Bedworth just north of Coventry. The canal was once an important artery of trade between the English Midlands and London, and is now highly popular among pleasure boaters.
The Oxford Canal passes mainly through the Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire countryside, and is often considered to be one of the most scenic canals in Britain. North of Napton-on-the-Hill, the canal forms part of the Warwickshire ring.

Who you lookin at!!

Wet or dry this is a lovely walk to a pub or two!


  1. Some fabulous photos here Anne well done. I love walking along the canals, there is always so much going on and you have captured the activity perfectly. Take care Diane xox

  2. Anne, I can't believe it. I wrote a really long comment on this post just after you'd put up this post, and it's not here!! I can't believe that. I said thwhat a great selection of pics you had put up, and how I loved all the quirky tthinks you had found, like the Buddha, the old bike etc. How funny the ducks were and how I loved the photo of the Irises in the rain. I also said that I always remember Jericho from the very first ever episode of Morse. I'm glad I came back again !
