Flooded fields beside the River Avon
Flooded fields beside the River Avon
After a night of heavy rain, and on top of very heavy rain four days ago the Avon has burst its banks. Flooding to the south of the river in this location is reasonably frequent, but this level is somewhat higher than normal.

The normal location of the river is marked by the line trees in the mid-distance.
