Not the Somerset Levels but wet enough to ask questions. Such as where should all this water be? The land is saturated. Could it have absorbed more water if more trees had been allowed to remain? This is the part of Blacka where approaching a hundred trees were poisoned. The recent cuttings of shrubs cannot have helped either.
Even heather absorbs water and there are still patches of bare peat from the sprayings of more than a year ago.
Further down as the water channels along the footpaths and runs into the streams the falls above the Dyke are roaring.
