First flood of the season

The rain has come and quickly changed the look of the Quaggy as it flows through the park

A number of the paths are flooded too which means that boots are the best option for walks. For those that use the park as a route from Mayeswood Road to Grove Park it is best to use the path that goes along by the railway line as this is passable at the moment. However if there is much more rain this path will be under water too so keep a look out!

At the moment the park is doing its job as a flood catchment area, protecting housing downstream, and the water quickly recedes after rain but I am sure some local residents will be watching anxiously as floods seem to be increasing year on year.
