Rising again

The Severn, that is. It was high yesterday, when these photos were taken (Ironbridge’s Wharfage is closed – the flood barriers are up), and it’s rising – the peak is expected tonight. We took a look at the flood waters above the “big bends” near Leighton, then drove on to Atcham, where two bridges cross the river in close proximity – the 1929 A5 bridge and the 1774 bridge, now for pedestrians only.
