NS3975 : Flooding at Riverside Lane

taken 10 months ago, near to Dumbarton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Flooding at Riverside Lane
Flooding at Riverside Lane
This riverside path runs between the River Leven and the car parks that are behind the buildings on the south side of the High Street.

An LED sign at this end of the car parks had lit up, warning that at high tide, between 3 and 4 pm, there was a danger of flooding. The river was just beginning to lap over onto the path as I took this picture.

This level of flooding does little harm. I have, though, known it to be much worse, if only rarely: NS3975 : Flooding at Riverside Lane / NS3975 : Flooding at Riverside Lane / NS3975 : Flooding at Riverside Lane / NS3975 : Flooding at Riverside Lane.
Lion's Gate to Dumbarton Rock :: NS3976
This description covers a subset of West Dumbartonshire's core paths (4953 inclusive and 157) that, when taken together, make up a continuous path (49 + 50 + 52 + 53) along or near the eastern bank of the River Leven ( Link ), beginning at the Lion's Gate at Kilmalid, and ending at Dumbarton Rock(*). Two shorter paths (51 and 157) branch off from the riverside path. Others paths branch off from it near the SUDS pond at Lomondgate ( Link ); these are also included here, although they are not core paths.

(*) Note that, as of mid-2018, core path 53 stops at the east end of Riverside Lane, but it is intended that it eventually be extended to become a riverside walkway to Dumbarton Rock.
