Flooding in Purley-on-Thames (update – 6th January 2013)
Jack and I went with Nana for a walk down to Mapledurham Lock this afternoon and I took some photos of the receding flood waters. We think the water level must have dropped about 2-3 feet since the previous pictures I posted.
I strongly believe that the swans saw a child and thought we were a sure thing for bread!
Gulls swimming in the fields…
The weir at Mapledurham Lock – spot the crazy canoeists??
Canoeists on the weir…
The water depth measured 12ft…

The lady at the lock cafe must have thought we were insane, as JackJack has an ice lolly (lemonade flavour) – brrrrrr!
