Kennet and Thames Flooding


Recommended Posts

Both rivers are over the banks in Reading and surroundings and as high, or higher than 2003.

Went past the Arrowhead (Thatcham station) and the Kennet was flowing across the road just before you climb the hill to Crookham Common - NEVER seen that before.....

Drove over hambridge today and the river is out of it's banks and nearly in the entrance to two rivers way on the Naa side, was surprised to see a car parked at the top end of the csas stretch!

You can see how the level has risen in that short time and given the constant rain we’ve had since then I expect I’d have to wear chesties to take a photo from the same spot. I’ve got the last week of the season off work, looks like I’ll be all dressed up with no place to go, even the Lambourn is struggling;
