Staines Moor

Staines,Middlesex. Tue 16 Feb 2016
 

 
 The Oast House, now firmly sealed by Surrey County Council to prevent it becoming a community resource

 Staines Aqueduct brings water from the Thames to the reservoirs. But it flooded disastrously into the River Ash in 2014

 River Colne

 The start of the River Ash, a distributary of the Colne which flows into the River Thames in Sunbury

 

 The intake which controls the flow of the River Ash from the River Colne

 Staines Bypass

 The 'Big Pipe' (now there are two of them) which takes gas across the Colne

 and sometimes foolhardy youths across the river

 Bonehead Ditch, a stream of the Colne, rejoins it at the base of the tree line. Several trees have fallen across Bonehead Ditch providing a useful short cut
to the Moor, though not one I felt up to using today
 
River Colne and behind the trees the King George VI reservoir 

The distant low hill in the centre of the image is landfill after gravel extraction. 

Across the Moor is the M25 - with some road signs visible - and the bank of the Wraysbury Reservoir 

A row of pylons crosses the Colne on Staines Moor 

 

 

I tried the panorama mode on the Fuji X-T1 but could not really get it to work well - this was my best result, and none of them are sharp when enlarged.

The Wraysbury River is another stream of the Colne and rejoins it in the centre of Staines
