I thought that I would continue the theme of the floods in Southern England as they are the worst on record. This picture is taken from Bury Hill looking across a flood plain towards Bury and Pulborough. The river Arun runs through this area and normally not very wide. The Arun is subject to flooding, however this year it has been exceptional. The area is mostly farmland although I believe that some farms and houses have been flooded.
Bury is on the A29 also known as Stane Street (a Roman Road that went from London to Chichester). It is wonderful for driving along because, in places, where it follows the original course it is very straight and goes through some lovely old villages and towns. Bury is a the bottom of the escarpment on the north side of the South Downs (now a National Park).
