River Camel floods 22nd December 2012

Polbrock meadows from the Camel Trail.
 
After weeks of heavy rain and 24 hours of virtually non stop downpour the River Camel decided to takeover the whole valley as a torrent ran off the already sodden land.

I walked from Treraven bridge at Wadebridge along the Camel trail as far as Polbrock where the river was right across the Camel trail and even with wellies I couldn't get through.

Here are a few record shots.

An incredible set of images of unbelievable scenes. The iron bridge image says it all.
Happy Christmas Adrian.
