‘Flooded paths take time to recover’

Some important points are made about the state of the Thames Path by John Orchard of Oxfordshire Ramblers.

Writing in the latest South East Walker, he says that the entire Thames was recently under a flood warning. “Vast swathes of land under water” for weeks has been the situation especially in the Abingdon area.

An interesting point made by John is that paths will take a long time to recover and it may be some time before we can walk the paths without being caked in mud.

But as I write it is still February.
