River Avon in Flood from Stratford Recreation Ground

Flooded River Avon and Clopton Bridge at Stratford | Stratford upon Avon Photographs


This image was taken during a period of flooding on the River Avon in the centre of Stratford upon Avon, the water level had been higher than this but had lowered a little to allow me to get close the the normal edge of the river which is inline with the tree on the right. The canal lock gates on the opposite side of the river were firmly shut at this point to keep the water at bay.
