From its headwaters near the village of Charwelton (Northamptonshire), the river Cherwell flows southwards, passing through Banbury and Kidlington before flowing into the Thames at New Hinksey (Oxford). The river Ray has its headwaters near Quainton, from which it flows slowly south-west past Bicester to its confluence with the river Cherwell at Islip. Other than these key urban areas, the Cherwell catchment is very rural, with a high proportion of arable land. The underlying geology is predominantly clay.","rbd-hyperlink":"https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/river-basin-management-plans-2015","photoAltText":"River Ray at Charlton on Otmoor","id":"3012","wbagg":{"header":["Water body categories","Natural","Artificial","Heavily modified","Total"],"aggregations":[{"Water body categories":"River, canals and surface water transfers ","Natural":32,"Artificial":0,"Heavily modified":2,"Total":34},{"Water body categories":"Lake","Natural":0,"Artificial":1,"Heavily modified":0,"Total":1},{"Water body categories":"Coastal","Natural":0,"Artificial":0,"Heavily modified":0,"Total":0},{"Water body categories":"Estuarine","Natural":0,"Artificial":0,"Heavily modified":0,"Total":0},{"Water body categories":"Groundwater","Natural":0,"Artificial":0,"Heavily modified":0,"Total":0},{"Water body categories":"Total","Natural":32,"Artificial":1,"Heavily modified":2,"Total":35}]},"classificationstatus":{"surfaceWrapper":{"chemical":{"header":[{"color":"#FF0000","type":"Fail"},{"color":"#00CC00","type":"Good"}],"status":{"2016 Cycle 2":{"Good":35,"Fail":0},"2019 Cycle 2":{"Good":0,"Fail":35},"2015 Cycle 2":{"Good":35,"Fail":0}}},"ecological":{"header":[{"color":"#FF0000","type":"Bad"},{"color":"#FFA500","type":"Poor"},{"color":"#FFFF00","type":"Moderate"},{"color":"#00CC00","type":"Good"},{"color":"#0000FF","type":"High"}],"status":{"2016 Cycle 2":{"High":0,"Moderate":15,"Poor":17,"Bad":2,"Good":1},"2019 Cycle 2":{"High":0,"Poor":12,"Bad":2,"Moderate":20,"Good":1},"2015 Cycle 2":{"High":0,"Poor":15,"Moderate":17,"Bad":2,"Good":1}}},"total":{"header":[{"color":"total","type":"#ffffff"}],"status":{"2016 Cycle 2":{"total":35},"2019 Cycle 2":{"total":35},"2015 Cycle 2":{"total":35}}}},"yearandcycles":["2019 Cycle 2","2016 Cycle 2","2015 Cycle 2"]},"measureRnagagg":{"measureRNAGdata":{"data":[{"sector":"Agriculture and rural land management","rfd":0,"rnag":81,"total":81,"measureCount":8},{"sector":"Domestic General Public","rfd":0,"rnag":1,"total":1,"measureCount":0},{"sector":"Industry","rfd":0,"rnag":3,"total":3,"measureCount":0},{"sector":"Local and Central Government","rfd":0,"rnag":0,"total":0,"measureCount":0},{"sector":"Mining and quarrying","rfd":0,"rnag":0,"total":0,"measureCount":0},{"sector":"Navigation","rfd":0,"rnag":5,"total":5,"measureCount":0},{"sector":"No sector responsible","rfd":2,"rnag":30,"total":32,"measureCount":0},{"sector":"Other","rfd":0,"rnag":7,"total":7,"measureCount":0},{"sector":"Recreation","rfd":0,"rnag":1,"total":1,"measureCount":0},{"sector":"Sector under investigation","rfd":0,"rnag":1,"total":1,"measureCount":0},{"sector":"Urban and transport","rfd":0,"rnag":5,"total":5,"measureCount":0},{"sector":"Waste treatment and disposal","rfd":0,"rnag":0,"total":0,"measureCount":0},{"sector":"Water Industry","rfd":0,"rnag":77,"total":77,"measureCount":6}]},"measureHeader":{"Sector":"sector","Number of measures":"measureCount"},"rnagHeader":{"Sector":"sector","RFD":"rfd","RNAG":"rnag","Grand Total":"total"},"measureFooter":["Grand Total","14"],"rnagFooter":["Grand Total","2","211","213"]},"objectivestatus":{"surfaceWrapper":{"tables":{"Chemical status":{"tablename":"Chemical status","header":[{"color":"#FF0000","type":"Fail"},{"color":"#00CC00","type":"Good"},{"color":"#ffffff","type":"Total"}],"status":{"Beyond 2027":{"Total":0,"Good":0,"Fail":0},"By 2021":{"Total":0,"Good":0,"Fail":0},"Total":{"Total":35,"Good":35,"Fail":0},"By 2015":{"Total":35,"Good":35,"Fail":0},"By 2027":{"Total":0,"Good":0,"Fail":0}}},"Ecological status or potential":{"tablename":"Ecological status or potential","header":[{"color":"#FF0000","type":"Bad"},{"color":"#FFA500","type":"Poor"},{"color":"#FFFF00","type":"Moderate"},{"color":"#00CC00","type":"Good"},{"color":"#0000FF","type":"High"},{"color":"#ffffff","type":"Total"}],"status":{"Beyond 2027":{"High":0,"Bad":0,"Poor":0,"Moderate":0,"Total":0,"Good":0},"By 2021":{"High":0,"Bad":0,"Poor":0,"Moderate":0,"Total":0,"Good":0},"Total":{"High":0,"Bad":2,"Poor":3,"Moderate":13,"Total":35,"Good":17},"By 2015":{"High":0,"Bad":2,"Poor":3,"Moderate":11,"Total":17,"Good":1},"By 2027":{"High":0,"Bad":0,"Poor":0,"Moderate":2,"Total":18,"Good":16}}}},"byyears":[]},"byyears":["By 2015","By 2021","By 2027","Beyond 2027","Total"]},"legend":[{"type":"Management Catchment","color":"#bd1c1c"}]}
