Taken 23-10-2019 on my revisit to the FAS scheme,this is looking towards Adam Bridge,from the Asda side if the junction. On completion of the contract in 2008, there was a clear view of the river.

Plenty of Japanese Knot Weed there, last year my next door neighbour reported us for having knot weed in the garden, an inspector looked over from her side and agreed, when he came around to our garden I was more than pleased to tell him what he made out was knot weed was actually a Kiwi Vine, on inspection he had to agree and went off embarrassed.

Himalayan Balsam was at one time the main invasive plant growing along the river bank, seems that knot weed is now taking over from it.
