A similar view to SZ0891 : Bournemouth: the cenotaph, except for the weather conditions!

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.

Believe it or not, the water had started receding quite substantially by the time I went out with the camera - a two-foot wall of water had carried along Braidley Road and swept down the stone steps, just out of sight to the right and leading down to the front of the cenotaph. There was no grass visible across the Gardens a couple of hours ago but by teatime water levels had receded to what could only be described as a bit higher than usual.
