Test Valley

Another post from our visit to Chilbolton Observatory, England.

There seems to be a part of England where everything is "under test". Nothing is certain and all manner of things seem to be being checked. Welcome to the Test Valley (yep, we're checking this valley... just in case).

The cause of this curiosity is that the river is actually called the Test River. That is, "Test" is the name of the river. (Only in England!)

Warning! This is a River Test... please be careful! (Photo: D. McKay-Bukowski)

So, not only is there a "Test River", but there is also a "Test Shop", "Test Bridge", "Test Cottage"... in fact, as mentioned, the entire valley is being tested.

You certainly can't beat that for quality control!
