Flash Flood At Pottery House


We had an incredible rain storm this afternoon, it rained so heavily for a while that the guttering couldn't cope and was gushing over.

After the rain stopped we went out into the garden to discover that the lawn had started to bubble up in huge mounds with water trapped undernear. The water was then forcing it's way up through the paving slabs of our path, gushing into the pond, overflowing across the path the other side, running across our vegitable patch and then flooding the chicken run.

We've never seen this before at Pottery House even during the wettest times in the winter.

Luckily the worst damage it has caused is to wash away a few plants and remove a lot of top soil.















Water coming up through the path and running into the pond.

















Water then overflows out of the pond, across the path and across the vegitable garden.
