Flaming July! by Catherine Evans :: 14th July 2012

I’ve always thought that living on top of a hill flooding would never be a problem but yesterday I was proved wrong! I got stranded in Cleobury when the road from Tenbury was impassable so I called on a friend who gave me shelter. John then told me not to attempt to get home as all roads from Broome Park to Cleobury were impassable too! Fortunately the water subsided as quickly as it had come and I was able to get home by 10pm – to a power cut! This morning damage has been wide spread and I think we got off lightly, the Ford at Neen was running fast and further downstream the bridge at Neen Sollars has been washed away – a long detour for trips to our favourite pub!
