Heavy rain

Monday, November 30th 2009

The heavy rain has had its effects at Foxglove just as everywhere else. Here you can see the normal few inches depth of Risedale Beck has been turned into a torrent.

The water comes along so fast it can sweep large logs and stones along in its path.

The weir

The lake is also very high and the water is surging over the weir like a miniature High Force!
