Bournemouth: a canopy in the flooded Lower Gardens
Bournemouth: a canopy in the flooded Lower Gardens
This canopy has been used throughout the summer holidays by a children's activity base, with dance mats, juggling equipment and the like. Today, though, it is stood empty as the Gardens are closed due to flooding.

Torrential rain this morning brought much flooding to Bournemouth town centre and, unsurprisingly, most of it ended up in the gardens through which the Bourne Stream trickles (in its normal state) down to the Pier Approach.

The water had receded substantially by the time I went out with the camera - we can see the stream in the foreground, now only just in breach of its walled sides. At its height, there would have been no grass visible from this spot and, indeed, I would not have reached this spot without being seriously wet!
