Osney Lock: Temporary footbridge

A temporary bridge has been installed at Oxford’s Osney Lock to keep the Thames Path open whilst work on the lock is completed over the winter.

The two weirs are being refurbished and a hydro installed to generate enough electricity to power more than 50 houses.

Some of the weir timber has been dated back to 1883. The lock is expected to reopen by the end of February.
