WNTV: RIVER LEVELS RISING ON THE WYE AT ROSS

Having filmed and photographed the whole of the unprecedented natural event of last weekend over a period of 72 hours, beginning Friday, I have edited the footage down into two short films. The first is a little over 8 minutes long and the second, 10 minutes. These films show how the River Wye at Ross rose from a level which was already very high for the month of July to peak flooding levels, higher than those reached last winter.

The films are shot from various locations by the river, including the White Lion Inn, Wilton Bridge, Wilton Castle, Fisherman's Reach (Wilton), The bandstand and riverside area, the Hope & Anchor public house, Metcalf Close and Edde Cross Street.

If you would like to download a higher quality, 'Windows Media' version of each film to keep on your own computer (personal use only), right clicking the links below will allow you to save (or watch live if you have extremely fast DSL).

Around and about during the flood

As mentioned elsewhere in this issue (I'm getting so tired and confused putting this issue of the news together as there are so many photos, which have all had to be processed) I spent the weekend, from Friday to Sunday photographing and filming the river rising and the flood water.

Here are just a few of the many hundreds of photos I took at various wet locations on Saturday evening and Sunday.

The top photos were taken a little after midnight on Saturday and show Wilton Bridge, the view downstream from the bridge and the White Lion / Wilton Court.

Rather than write a lot here, as I am running out of time, I have captioned the photos.
