Here you can see the river in flood looking out towards Wilton. The river banks have a covering on both sides but the river is only just bursting it's banks.


The old tree in the field in the middle of the horse shoe bend is almost surrounded by the water.

The swans and seagulls seem to be relatively unworried by the floods.


The river is quite high coming under the Bridstow bridge on the A40 but is only just over the bank.

The flood is pretty close to the boat house.


November 2005

Here we see the river Wye flooding right over the Rope Walk and the play area that is along side it. It was taken sometime in the Autumn of 2005 (most likely November).
