Thames Water coming through

Thames Water van and river. Roads leading in and out of Cookham where closed at the height of the flood. Just beyond the Van is the car park for Cock Marsh.

You'd never know this is a road if it wasn't for the van
John Prior: Yes quite fast flowing, and the water had gone down a couple of feet when I shot this

John Prior: A very wet winter so far, but you have 40 degree heat I understand, the weather seems made up of extremes now.

Stanley Spencer would turn in his grave John. He might even paint that scene too.
John Prior: Yes indeed, but he must have experienced flooding, a local told me this was the worst he could remember in thirty years.
