Days Lock


Day's lock  is at a place called Little Wittenham along the Thames near Dorchester. I went along there with my son to get some photos of the lock and other interesting places nearby.

After parking near the church you follow the path along here towards the bridge you see. There is another one after this I did not get a photo of which is the Poohsticks bridge of at least was, the arch bridge I remember has been replaced by a flat decked bridge that is able to support traffic to the Environment Agency compound there

Skipping a bit here and over the third bridge this is from the bridge looking towards Dorchester and the abbey there

This is Days lock which is to the right

The arch span I took the photos from

The weir with a lot of water flowing through it

Not something you would want to fall in

You can just see Poohsticks bridge in the distance which is not as romantic as the old wooden one. No doubt kids still play pooh stick there

This is the bridge I took the photos from earlier

Time to head back over the bridge past the Lock Keepers cottage You can see more photos around the lock on Skywatch Friday

Take Care and have a good week
