River Severn very high water level…!

Well, I was hoping for a white Christmas but here in Gloucester, it was more of a very wet Christmas! One of the more common features of the last month or so has been the rain, rain, rain…!

A slightly worrying by-product of the rain is the very high river water levels, particularly the River Severn which runs to the west of the built up area of Gloucester. I walked over to The Quay which runs alongside the river to check out the rather wet landscape which has developed over the last few weeks.
