This week’s Swan Upping, the annual census of the mute swan population on the River Thames, has been cancelled due to severe flood conditions on the River Thames.
The bridleway entry to Hartslock Wood near Whitchurch-on-Thames is going to be repaired and improved this summer.
The flight of steps is to be replaced and the surface at the side for horses and bicycles improved.
The path here is deep and narrow on the only section of the Thames Path which goes up a hill.
The work will take place from the end of July and should be completed by Friday 10 August. There are no diversions.
