First winter flood


Well today we have the usual winter flood in Rickerby Park, no dog walkers, no joggers in fact it’s very quiet just the swishing, tinkling as the water rushes by.

Usually there are uni students crossing the memorial bridge from the Warwick Road area to walk through Rickerby Park to attend the University of Cumbria on Brampton Road but today there are none. But there is nothing that would deter this young lady student from attending her vital fine art assessment at the university. She cycled the flooded road and got her feet wet in the process and said it was very scary and hard work.
