A season of rain, wind and floods


Ham is accustomed to floods but this Winter's rain, wind and high tides have conspired to make conditions much worse that usual. The ground is consistently wet and and many trees have fallen in the battle.



The towpath is under the water somewhere. Luckily the tide had been going our for a few minutes by the time that I got to this stretch, by Douglas Footpath, so I was able to make progress by clambering through the trees and bushes on the slightly raised edge of the path.

 

The water had been around for a while and had filled up the ditches on the far side of the towpath. The newish bridge sits above it all allowing me to disappear along Douglas Footpath.
