Osney Lock screw

The (reverse) Archimedes screw for Osney Lock Hydro arrived on 25 March. Here it is being lowered into position near the lock. There is already a privately owned one on the other side of the lock, in Osney Mill, but you can't see it. The new one is community owned and, like Abingdon Hydro, was designed in such a way that you can get up close.
