We had a decent day yesterday however I see Mr and Mrs Tiz have an amber flood warning hanging over them!

Glass fallen to 28.5" Dry, light breeze and 50F. Gales and rain forecast for further west but no signs here as yet.

Have been enjoying a week of sunshine on the east coast, back to a very autumnal damp grey North yorkshire.

Oh My ! ....Hasn't it rained...it's just tipped it down all day.....
The high tide this evening  , and the outflow from the River Camel resulted in the highest water I've seen passing under "The Bridge On Wool" in Wadebridge.

I'm really hoping that there will not  be a quantity of large debris coming down to block the arches......

Best of luck with the flood water.



We had a quiet autumn day on Letcliffe yesterday. Glass still falling, 28.4" this morning. There's been a bit of rain during the night but nothing serious. Light breeze only. We seem to be escaping the worst of the depression.

Just got back from my early morning walk round Barlick. Calm, clement, dry and quite a reasonable morning. Certainly no signs of the wind and rain that hait the far west last night. I see that some parts of Cornwall had almost 3" of rain. Watch that bridge Bradders!

Is that a view point thingy at Letcliffe, Stanley? How do I find that from the car park off the top road, and can you see the view over the trees?

I like your description of the sighting obelisk, it describes it perfectly. If you walk over to the kids play area from the car park you will see a gate in the wall, the obelisk is just through the gate. The concrete block it sits on used to support a WWI tank, there are photos on the site that shows it making it's way up to the park from Barlick railway station.

The lower side of the park is where the B.U.D.C. nursery greenhouses used to be. If you walk down the hill a little you will also see the terraced bandstand. Just inside the gate by the kids play area is where the small wooden hut used to be where you hired pitch and put clubs and balls for the 9 hole course that was on the top where the trees have been planted. To the left of the obelisk in the small lawned area there was a smaller 9 hole course for children. Below this is where the cenotaph used to be sited before it was moved down into town.

Next time you go up there have a good search around, lots more to the park than what you see from the car park or the route through from King Hill.

What happened to the tank?  Clouding in a bit at the moment, but very still and dry.

Thanks Ian. Will go and have a look next time we park up there for our Weets walk.  I will try and remember to call it a sighting obelisk, and not a thingy.
Lovely sunshine, no wind and mild. Must get outside.

What a difference a day makes ...eh !

Yesterday the heavens opened and it lasted most of the daylight hours..our lane was a river ...

Today has been lovely...... the lane and my car are clean (er)....

PS Just seen on BBC Spotlight Southwest , that they recorded over 70mm of rain on Bodmin Moor yesterday .....and we live within 5 miles NW ish .The wind was mainly from the South East so it really dumped on us too.....(..... I thought it was a bit ,moist  !)

Tank

If you search for the term "tank" on the site, there are a number of photographs of it. Although the one with it in transit from the railway station or on it's way up Park Road does not turn up with that search term. I'm sure I've seen it on the site though.

Sorry if it's a bit off topic.

Funny about that pic, I have seen it too but never found it again!

Dry and cool with a slight breeze this morning. Glass has started to rise and is on 28.6". It looked threatening at times yesterday but never rained.

Wendy, have a look at my article on the Letcliffe tank which I've dragged out of the archive for you.
