Quite a start to the year, snow is not common here, on average about once every ten years, the flooding was more frequent but in the last few years work has been done to reopen more arches of the old bridge and now this is completed there is far less risk of a high tide like this, in fact the area where the dogs are walking has been removed and the arches to the right cleared. The whole area has been landscaped with an amphitheatre and riverside walk.

For more photos of the flooding and the work carried out on the old bridge to re-open the additional arches. [Click here]
