Looking downstream from Sidlow Bridge.

The catchment area for the upper River Mole includes Crawley and Gatwick Airport - a lot of hard surface for heavy rain to run quickly off and into the river, which therefore regularly floods. The clay subsoil for much of the catchment area makes matters worse, leading to saturated ground.

The normal course of the river is the left hand side of the photo, the water on the right and in the background being flood.
