Bourton Football Match in the River

The Annual five-a-side football match in the River Windrush at Bourton on the Water was held on Monday, August 31st. at 7.00 am this year. Bourton on the Water has had a large number of visitors since the easing of lockdown, so the match was organised to take place earlier than usual to maintain Government COVID guidelines.  The traditional sporting match, dating back almost 100 years, is held on the Monday of the bank holiday weekend at the end of August. This picture was taken in the 1920’s.  Bourton on the Water has had as many as 10,000 visitors per day throughout August which has been a welcome boost to the local economy.
