The Shropshire River Corve in flood – March 2014

Standard

Anthony Sargeant took this photograph at 4.00 pm in March 2014 from the bedroom window of his Shropshire home. The River Corve normally a few metres in width had flooded across the meadows. With the constant rain of this day (6th February 2016) we are quite likely to see a repeat as the water moves down off the surrounding hills into the River Corve. It is good that the house is safely above the flood plain sitting as it does on a rocky outcrop.
