Derwentwater floods

November 18, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Went for a quick jaunt around Derwentwater between Manesty and Ashness the day before yesterday, the flooding is pretty bad, might be a little while until the ferries get back to normal, they'll have to do quite a bit of wooden pile sinking first, as most of the jetty's at Derwent landings are flood damaged.

Ashness landing is also underwater, the path around the Grange end of the lake at Manesty is impassable unless you have flippers and the link from Barrow bay to the Kettlewell car park is under about six to seven feet of water!

All pretty bad but the waters are now receeding and the rebuilding can begin in ernest very soon, if your on the way to the Derwentwater area, please take care and try to support as many of the local businesses as you can.

With that said on to a gallery of captures from Monday the 16th of November...
