Survey on Carlisle
This is the EA flood map for Carlisle.
Note the narrow end of the flooding at the disused railway viaduct downstream of town. Just upstream of this there used to be a power station that has recently been demolished. Did any rubble end up in the river? There is certainly something blocking the river above and below the viaduct. Half the bridge is blocked and needs clearing. Not allowed!
The River Eden is tidal 5km downstream and may have some effect.
The river through town and under the Eden Bridge is full of gravel as usual.
