More Flooding in the Midlands
Yesterday was another day of heavy downpours in England. The Midlands were particularly hard hit. Both the Severn and the Avon were flooded; Tewkesbury, where the two rivers come together, is at the moment virtually cut off. In Stratford-upon-Avon, water seeped into the Swan Theatre, prompting a cancellation of last night's performance of Macbeth. Train service into Oxford is temporarily suspended. Below are pictures of the main street through Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds: as it looked when we visited in September, and a detail of how it looked yesterday.
