Burstwick Drain, Hedon
Burstwick Drain, Hedon
Firemen pumping water from flooded properties into an already dangerously full Burstwick Drain, on the parish boundary between Burstwick and Hedon. East of here, Burstwick Drain has proved unable to cope with the huge volume of water being channelled south and west towards the River Humber after recent heavy rains. The drain and other smaller ones overflowed onto the surrounding farmland creating a shallow lake with very few patches of dry land in between, stretching for almost three kilometres from the greenhouses near Hall Bridge in Burstwick to the Villa Lane junction on the A1033 between Hedon and Thorngumbald. When this photograph was taken the water in some places had already receded by a foot or more, thanks largely to a concerted effort by the fire brigade.
