Waterland

I went down to Cowey Sale next to Walton Bridge this weekend to take some photos. The Thames looks like the Broad Majestic Shannon at the moment and the flooding is far worse than I've seen it before.

The Thames Path along the Desborough Channel is completely submerged, and the Thames Meadow, the central patch of green in the picture below is now a lake.



The new Walton Bridge is holding firm, despite getting its ankles wet.

And if you're not directly affected by the raised water levels, watching such a huge volume of water swelling through the river is an awe-inspiring sight.
