Double anniversary celebrations have take place at Hillmorton Locks.

They were the 175th anniversary of Morton Flight Duplicate Locks 1840-2015 and 225th anniversary of the Oxford Canal 1790-2015.

Visitors gathered at the locks recently and enjoyed a number of fun activities.

People were invited to enter photographs they had taken at the event last month.

Hillmorton man David Ralph is pictured receiving first prize of £100 for his photo called “brewing up” from lock-keeper Colin King.

“I was really delighted to win,” said David.

Second place was Jeff Dutton and Third was Sarah Millett.
