post xmas 023….a wet end to 2012 and the Kennet keeps on rising….took Rolo to investigate and saw the banks by St George’s church at Preshute are just about holding out and the overflow ditches have now joined with the main river, widening the flow by some feet. The torrent is gushing. The chickens in Manton have thankfully been moved to higher ground…their houses are like islands in the lake that was the garden. Enjoyed a New Years Day walk up over the hills and across the muddy fields to Manton. Something about New Year’s Day always makes me yearn to climb a hill and look down on a view….no idea why! Luckily it was a beautiful dry day…a bit of respite for the poor chickens! By the way the last photo shows the gleaming overspilling Kennet from the house – not usually visible from here. Again I am thankful I live on a hill!
