Downton Hill to Welford Wharf

Welford Wharf

A damp morning, not actual rain, but very low cloud forming a very fine drizzle, which gradually eased as we arrived at Welford. At least the wind had dropped to nothing. At Welford lock we noticed the installed temporary back pump and piping to pump water back up past the lock. Apparently they have had to back pump to keep the arm above the lock in water.

We had lunch at The Wharf Inn. after lunch we walked up to see how Welford reservoir is doing, the photos say it all really.

The tree is well and truly high and dry

Talking to one of the fishermen at the waters’ edge, he reckoned his lines were in the deepest part and it was only 3ft deep!
