    Good afternoon,

    Just a thought about our weather this winter; this lane is about 500 yards from our house, (and luckily about 20 feet lower):

    Oddly enough, it's called Flood Street . . .

    Regards,

    Graham

    Wow! Glad to hear you're 20 ft higher. Looks like a good time to stay dry and enjoy the holidays!

    Maybe they should re name it river street;)

    I'm glad it hasn't flooded you out.

    How is the Mill at Breamore, is it flooded? Isn't there a road there called the shallows, have they renamed it the deep?

    Hi Nick,

    The Avon is certainly high, but the Mill wasn't flooded when I last passed over the bridges there. The Shallows runs alongside the west bank of the mill's tailrace, so I doubt if it's in any danger. Most of the water in Flood Street has run off the downs to the north of the village, and will eventually find its way back to the Avon, which has come out of its banks about 5 miles south of us. We need to be aware of how the watercourses work around here!

    Regards,

    Graham
