High winds have brought down a large Cedar Tree at the Old Rectory Ickham.
Wickham Lane, Ickham, impassable to traffic as the Little Stour overflows.
Drill Lane. Ickham, also closed to traffic. The water still rising and the sandbags in place.
Wellies on and the water nearly reach the top, but a good view of the reserve that now looks like a large lake.
One car seems to be stuck, or parked in a rather silly place. The driver in the car coming towards me stopped, wound his window down, and asked me if he could get through OK. When I assured him he'd be OK, but asked him not to got too fast as he passed me, the stupid idiot managed to create a wave that topped my wellies. If you know Mr R14 ALT. pass on my good wishes and tell him he's a pratt!
Looking away from the reserve, in a NE direction, the fields were still mainly under water.
The Little Stour at the Blue Bridge had over flowed on both sides, making huge lakes.
The farmland by the Salvatoris depot is largely submerged. This is looking North-East
And the same situation looking South-West.
