Where does all the water go?

Water leaving Lydney Docks

Two guests from Whitemead and a King Charles Spaniel were not deterred by an adverse weather forecast and joined our guided woodland walk.  Due to recent rainfall plenty of water was encountered on the walk.

All this water has to go somewhere and much of the water from the Parkend area joins the river Lyd and ends up in nearby Lydney Harbour. Occasionally the volume of water exceeds the normal overflow and rushes over the lock gates into the river Severn as in the recent photo above.
