The Floods are Back


A few weeks ago I showed some photos of Goring and the floods there. At the time the water was not that high and the place seemed to escape the worst. Sunday I visited again only to find things a lot worse.

I took a photo  near the bridge last time and you could see the river, the building on the left is the Old Mill
 This is the mill stream which drives the wheel, normally it flows under the bridge, as you can see its under the water.

 The Swan, if you look you can see the water being pumped out of the place
Looking upstream towards Cleeve. The Thames is due to get higher yet as there is more rain on the way. Taking Part in Our World Tuesday

    You are, as ever, faithful to the record Bill - it is just gobsmacking how much water has arrived this winter for you all down south. Despite all the political posturing too, it has to be remembered that Nature is as Nature does. I pray for relief and recovery for all affected. YAM xx

  10. That looks bad but you got some amazing pictures. Does this happen very often?

  11. This is just awful. With more rain on the way and high winds one again, there is no respite in sight. One person I know who lives near the Thames has said that all he can do is put on his wellies and make his way to the pub! You can't fight Mother Nature!

  18. I live in Canada now, but checked with kids in Kent. They don't have flooding but Maidstone, nearby, is under water. The UK is really having a time of it right now. Enjoyed your photos.

    Found you on A to Z blogging.

  19. Hi Bill,

    I simply had to share your blogs on the A - Z Challenge blog. We're featuring photo blogs today, and you've done some amazing work in that area. Oh, these floods! What a sight, and you sure did capture it well! Best to you, my friend. M. J.

  20. Hi Bill,
    Thanks for sharing these images of the flooding in England! It is so intense and shocking. Here in Southern California we are experiencing a drought. What we would so for just some of England's rain! Best,
