Flooding – “up Country”in Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire
We have all seen the pictures of flooded fields and houses on the news and it is difficult to understand how devastating it can be. I lived up North for 20 years and saw at least 4 times how devastating it can be , 3 times on the River Wear in County Durham, of our 350 acres each time 140 acres was under water some of it 8 feet deep. Once in Cumbria farming next to the River Eden just outside Carlisle where the water came over the top of hedgerows.
