Last night the photos I posted last night were swallowed up by the ether . . . Today I've hit the jackpot! This is a little river near me - normally a stream really - but turned into a rageing torrent yesterday. Love the light in this. This stream used to be the border of the very last of the lands belonging to Tally Abbey (which is a fair way from here). There was a monastic cell here, and I believe bits of it ended up incorporated in the lower part of our house - beautifully dressed stone. By the 1850s it had become merely a stable . . .
The top photo is downstream - it could be worse yet though last night's rain wasn't so heavy and it is now cold and starry out.
I have loading problems with the photos so will probably have to have a series of individual photos when the broadband connection is good enough. Do you think the folks in the pub were filling sandbags?
