SY6593 : River Frome in flood

taken 10 years ago, near to Stratton, Dorset, Great Britain

River Frome in flood.
River Frome in flood.
The Maiden Newton to Dorchester railway crosses the A37 and the River Frome at the same time just SW of Stratton. The road has been lowered to allow large vehicles to pass under the bridge. When the river is in flood the road is over 1m below the river. Pumps under the road ensure the road does not flood.
