Sowerby Bridge, Nearly Flooded Again.

On March 16th 2019 after many days of constant rain, the water levels of the Rochdale Canal and the Rivers Calder & Ryburn began to rise causing great concern amongst the residents of the town of Sowerby Bridge. The town was badly hit by flooding on Boxing Day 2015 and it still lingers in the memory of many people who were affected by this. These are video clips I took and have uploaded to YouTube of the night of the high water and the morning after when the town breathed a great sigh of relief.

The first video shows the town as the levels were rising.

And the next 2 show Mearclough Bridge and Sowerby Bridge Cricket Ground on the nights when the levels were rising and the morning after when the rivers were much lower.
