Thames in Ashton Keynes

River

GB |

Public

Ashton Keynes has always suffered from flooding, and the River Thames that flows along beside High Road and crosses under Gosditch Street by the little bridge was prone to washing down to the School and beyond.

Villagers expected to be flooded every winter although the water could be controlled and directed to some extent by opening and closing ''hatches'' on the river. People talked of keeping their back door and front door open so the water flowed straight through, and of a foot of water standing indoors for weeks.
