Massive River Levels

With river levels at 4.25m this morning at Ross and it continuing to rain the flooding can only get worse. The Ferrie Inn car park has again been claimed by water and the road to Symonds Yat West has gone. If river levels continue to rise then more businesses will suffer as flood water makes it way further across land. When will it stop raining? Lets hope for a drier […]

River Levels Still High

After all the heavy rain the River Wye is still in flood still, following a brief drop in the levels on Sunday it’s back up again today at 4.24m today at Ross and still rising, that’s 3m above normal levels and bringing all sorts of debris down stream.

High Winds and High River Levels

It’s a little breezy down here in the Wye Valley, with 70mph winds today we have had to batten down the hatches to ride out the storm. It was a little too late for tipi though I’m afraid and although we had hitched up the sides it couldn’t take the gusts and ended up on the floor. Let’s hope the winds and the river levels drop a bit for some […]
