River stabilises as Rowing Museum re-opens
Published 17/02/14



THE River and Rowing Museum in Henley re-opened has re-opened.

It had been closed for seven days because staff and visitors could not reach the car park, which was underwater.

Traffic problems have also eased with the start of the school half-term holidays and roads re-opening as surface water has drained away.

Wargrave Road, which had been closed for more than a week, was re-opened to traffic on Saturday. Thames Side in Henley is open but has temporary traffic lights to help drivers avoid surface water.

But Remenham Lane in Remenham, Mill Lane in Henley, Mill Road in Lower Shiplake, Lands End Ford in Charvil, Spring Lane in Playhatch, Icknield Road in South Stoke and Sonning Bridge remain closed.

High winds on Friday brought down a 25ft fir tree in Deanfield Avenue which smashed a BMW Estate, writing it off.

More than 140 trees and big branches were brought down in Oxfordshire during the night.

A flood warning remains in place for the Thames in Henley, where the river level remains high but stable.

The Environment Agency said: “Levels are forecast to rise again over the next few days in response to recent rainfall but are currently expected to be lower than the levels seen last week.

“Some isolated property flooding from the river is still possible and further disruption to low lying roads is expected.”

The weather forecast is for light rain today and tomorrow (Tuesday) but Wednesday should be dry.
