Wraysbury Flood 2014 - before and after.

Various problems stopped me going out to my jazz club last night, so I matched some pictures of the flood with some shots I took yesterday morning,
This is the view of Wraysbury Splash today;


This is the same view on the 11th January;
And this is someone’s home made Flood Marker. The pink strip is marked out in inches.  You can just make out the middle bollard on the picture above;

At Staines, the River Colne Flood Marker reached 4 Feet 6 inches above normal, this looks about 3 Feet above normal. However in other places around the village it was a lot higher.

This is the Village green flooded out on 11th January, notice the top of the bench poking out of the water;


There's not a lot of cricket being played today and the bench is still a bit damp;



Hopefully, normal service will be resumed shortly.
