The finished article I think. The river is now well and truly restricted to 5.2m - Borrage Bridge is 23m. The river will flood the left bank at a higher level and hopefully will stay below the road, which is level with the houses. The path on the left bank appears to be level with the road and about 20m away. The cross section available to flood water is greatly restricted. This would give about 30sqm - similar to Williamson Bridge -but that overflowed. Would it b e possible to widen the river to 20m instead of narrowing to 5.2m. This would give 40sqm with a metre in height to spare. The river bank used to be beside the van on the right.
