Rotten stanchions on bridge handrail over River Windrush

Reported via desktop by Roger Taplin at 15:41, Monday 8 February 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and West Oxfordshire District Council less than a minute later

Stanchions supporting the downstream handrail on the bridge over the western branch of the river Windrush near Langdale Gate in Witney, OX28 6EY, are very rotten with a lot of wood missing at the bottom where the stanchions attach to the bridge base. When people lean on the handrail it moves out over the water, which is currently in spate, and therefore dangerous.
