Flooded in 2007

7m? wide some trees recently removed

Old coal yard.
New supermarket site

Gas works bridge 12m wide

Water left waste land through this gate

Hungate to Gas works bridge

Again this land has been changed by railway and industry and the flood width banks are approximate. This stretch of river is running between what was the old coal yard and the old gas works. Both banks appear to have encroached on the river reducing the width drastically - note width of Beck Isle Bridge. The old coal yard is is about to become a supermarket thus consolidating the new bank.
