On 30th December the river recorded a very high flow rate – with the river shooting up 2 meters in a matter of hours. This meant flood gates were mostly closed and sections of the path became impassable
This left behind mud and silt on many path sections and other areas were scoured away by the water. Thankfully our volunteer team were on the case and within two weeks most areas were cleared and repaired. Some sections are a bit rough and ready but all areas are now passable with the exception of the Bridge at Belford, which was washed out by the water.
