Water , water everywhere…..


River Wye, Monsal Dale, Derbyshire

For the past six weeks it would seem that the rain has been constant, very heavy at times and assisted on its way by the occasional gale.  True we have had the odd day when the sun has graced us for part of the day but that has been a rare experience.

So I was rather surprised that the Derbyshire River Wye is not running at a higher capacity.  Water levels are good but not at bank bursting levels…even so Monsal Dale weir still looks and sounds dramatic.

Forecast for the week ahead….more rain

6th February
