The Floods are Back
A few weeks ago I showed some photos of Goring and the floods there. At the time the water was not that high and the place seemed to escape the worst. Sunday I visited again only to find things a lot worse.
I took a photo near the bridge last time and you could see the river, the building on the left is the Old Mill
This is the mill stream which drives the wheel, normally it flows under the bridge, as you can see its under the water.
The Swan, if you look you can see the water being pumped out of the placeOur World Tuesday

The Last from the Underpass
These are the last of the photos I have taken from the underpass in Reading. These are also the last proper Murals I have. All I have to offer now is some Graffiti, painted wall signs and what we in the UK call ghost signs.
The first one you see here has at least been spared the destruction of tagging
10 Feb 1943
As it is the 71years since this happened I'm reshowing this blog.
This is the window from St Laurence in Reading, It was damaged in and air raid on the 10 Feb 1943. A plaque on the base reads
"This tracery formed part of what was the West Window of St Laurence's Church. It was dislodged during an enemy action on February 10th 1943."

Back at the Oracle
Remember a while ahgo I posted a few photos of the Oracle shopping well this year it suffered in the flooding and here is what it looked like on Monday
Looking towards the Watlington road bridge
Not a lot of clearance there
Don't think any one will be walking there for awhile. The Thames had gone down around half a meter last time I looked but as you can see the Kennet is still backed up.

Fishing by the Kennet
Newbury on Sunday, noticed this guy quietly fishing beside the lock in Newbury. He looked quite happy in his own little world away from the rest of the town.

Bus Shelter Mural
Finaly have a new laptop but still working a few things out with it as it is Windows 8 and I need to get my head round how it works. In the meantime I'll start posting again though it will be more of a random Daily Photo for a while.
This weeks Mural I came across a while ago but noticed it on Friday while I was out and passing through a village called Steadhampton. It's a mural painted in a Bus Shelter which looks like it may have been done buy the local school and brightens up a dull looking bus shelter.
