Flooding

The swollen river Thames keeps rising as severe flood warnings are issued.

Following news reports and severe flood warnings issued by the Environment Agency to an already swollen river Thames, I take a trip to Tesco and the nearby river for a photo opportunity.

A drive past King's Meadow finds most of it under water, including the children's play area and nearby football pitches. Continuing down Napier Road I come to a traffic control system in place to manage access through a severely submerged section of the road, fortunately no water enters my already sodden car.

After parking, I walk to the river and discover the Thames Path completely under water with entrance points flooded, including the approach to the nearby foot bridge over the River Kennet.
