River Report.


A miserable day to be out, incessant rain with some real downpours and a constant southwesterly wind just to make it even more unpleasant. These two photographs were taken earlier today. Safe to say the Barrow is in good winter flood. I have seen it much higher over the years but having said that its still rising. Many sections of towpath are submerged with heavy flow and now rendered dangerous. The river has burst its banks in many locations and a number of the local roads are flooded. The forecast is not looking great. Still raining with more to come. Time for another stick on the fire.

Latest radar predicts more rain.
