The flood meadow floods – December 2013

Towards the end of December 2013 the River Ouse over spilled into the flood plain at Sheffield Park. This was a sign of things to come as the whole meadow was eventually under water during the Christmas storms a matter of weeks later. However, at this point in time the flooding was minimal and simply gave us a chance to see what the meadow would look like if the meanders were reinstated.

It was a beautiful frosty morning with the meadow initially covered in mist. During our trip down there the mists cleared and the sun came out showing that it is a picturesque place to be even in winter.
