A few photos from yesterday afternoon…
Flooded allotments along the Botley Road.
Although the Osney Industrial Estate has flooded, the waters haven’t yet reached the Alden Press, who print the New Left Review. (What a blow that would be to working class struggle.)
Where do kebab vans go during the day? Mehdi’s — also known as the Brasenose kebab van — parks itself down Ferry Hinksey Road; and if the water levels rise higher there might be severe disruption to Oxford’s food supplies.
The Oatlands Recreation area has become a nice new lake. When I passed by some chap was very sensibly trying out his remote-controlled boat.
This last pic’s from this morning, as the people of Osney Island continue to watch the water levels in the river channel. The Environment Agency says water levels will continue to rise until some time tomorrow morning.
