Here are some photos of the flooding around our area - we weren't affected but this is just down the end of our street ... 1st two photos taken on Thursday 7 Jan - take note of the sign post in the water ... now check out what it looked like last Sunday 16 Jan [it had gone down by the Friday but not fully] - note the sign post again.. don't think I would have liked to have been stranded on that fishermen's seat, it must of been under quite a bit of water ...
This flood has given the river a good clean-out which I think they need every so often. Here is what it looked like further up the river from the main road bridge ... note there is a complete fisherman's carpark under water here...many who have been to my place will recognise the pub in the background when we drove over the bridge last Sunday the tide was so low there was mud showing on either side of the river - really is unbelievable to think it could have been so flooded.
