Friday Bench: Deluged

Flooded bench in Monkton Park Chippenham

Wiltshire had national media attention recently with the flooding in both Malmesbury (5 miles away to the north) and Bradford on Avon (10 miles away to the south-west) featuring in the news bulletins. Chippenham is on the same river and was relatively trouble free. However, this picture from Christmas Eve shows we didn’t escape unscathed.
