A Walk in the Snow

 

I woke up to the village covered in snow. For my walk I wandered to the Old Hills and then down Pixham Lane towards the old ferry, where the Severn has flooded. When I got there, the river had come further up the road and there was a swan swimming around and looking for food, where in the summer there had been sheep.

 

I then wandered back over the Old Hills towards Madresfield. I was hoping to get a shot of the Malvern Hills covered in snow but they weren’t visible through the mist.

 

 

The River Severn in Flood – Part 2

 

As I was on holiday today I had more time to go for a walk. When the Severn is in Flood it is most dramatic at either end of the village. Today I planned to walk to where I was yesterday, to see how much the river had risen and then along to the other end to see what it was like there.  What a difference a day makes !

 

The river had risen so high that not only could I not get to where I was yesterday but I had to double back on myself and take a different route to get to the other end of the village.
