Strong River Flows in Spring

Last year at this time we planned our trip around the Thames Ring. On March 2nd last year I reported that there were lots of red warning boards on the RiverThames stopping boating. This year it appears we have the same.

Our plans this Spring don't include the River Thames but they do include other rivers such as the Warwickshire Avon and the Severn. Let's hope things improve.

Last year stream conditions improved a little in early March but heavy rains in early April caused us to break our journey at Oxford and wait about two weeks. I will probably use the Thames warnings as a general monitor. We may have to consider a canal-only cruise.
