I live in a village near the River Swale in North Yorkshire.
The past week we have had a lot of rainfall, in some parts of the country we have had 6 weeks worth of rain on 24 hours. Yesterday the bridge was closed due to extensive flooding and the main road we live on was lovely and quiet! In fact, the only other day in the year that it is this quiet is Christmas Day.
I have noticed in the past decade or so that the road has gotten busier, with all the new houses they insist on building the councils just don’t seem to upgrade the roads.
Luckily we live at the other end of the village, more than half a mile away from the river so we never have any problems. I think there may have been a farm or two that were in danger of flooding but I don’t think they were hit.
