This corner of this field is always badly affected by floodwater after heavy rain and we have had quite a bit of that in recent days. The potato crop has only in the past few weeks been lifted from here, so in that
respect, the farmer was lucky.
In an attempt to save the young barley crop a tractor driven pump has been operating, the problem being that this valley is very flat and getting rid of the water is difficult. The JCB has been set across the road to stop vehicular access to the house and farm beyond the bridge as the drainage pipe crosses the road.
The young barley peeping now above the floodwater.
