U is for U bend



They come in various guises like the one under the sink or in a road but the ones I find most interesting are the ones in rivers, so much nicer to look at. I found the best ones were on the upper Thames  from Oxford To Lechlaide

They also call them horseshoe bends as they tend to be that shape. This one is near Kelmscot. The one below is near Rushley Lock.
The one below I blogged a while ago and is taken near Buscot.

  1. I agree. Horseshoes in rivers are so cool. I read once about how they are formed, but for the life of me can't remember any of it. Guess it's time to look it up again. Have a great day. :-)

    1. I have forgotten as well, long time since I was at school doing Geography. Loke your blogs and followed one.
