Abingdon Road Closed Due To Flooding

According to the Oxford City website the Abingdon Road was closed in the early hours of the morning due to flooding.  This is the second time this has happened in the last month, but it is not a new event as this postcard taken in 1894 suggests.  Taken outside the Fox and Hound which is now being converted in to a Tesco Metro, it clearly shows a lot of water in the area.  With all the records and history of events in Oxford you have to ask yourself the question, why didn't the council in the day say no to development in this area?
