Flooding July 2007

Flooding July 2007

Above: flooding on Station Road July 1968 - nothing new here, then ...

Two slideshows from around Station Road and the Abbey Fishponds in July 2007 - plus a rueful reminder of the Environment Agency map (below). According to the EA, the lighter shade of blue shows "extent of extreme flood" - though the photos taken within the eastern bypass suggest a review may be necessary. The slideshows also cover scenes on the A40 and on Cassington Road; from Oxford Road to Swinford Bridge; and at Eynsham Lock - which reached the highest river level recorded (1.19 metres) on 24 July 2007.

The Environment Agency has also published a Flooding Information Sheet >>
