Stock Ghyll Force in flood

A short film of the waterfall above Ambleside in the Lake District. Several days of rain and a stormy 24 hour period of continuous heavy rain (over 100mm) left much of Cumbria under water. The small town of Ambleside was cut off by flood water on local roads.

    Cool, Hopefully it will clean out the creek of trees and all that construction debris that was in their a few years back. I used to like that kayak run, good times

    Amazing video… was visiting this last weekend, and it was all very benign, much like the “normal” photos you can find online. This just goes to show how the power of nature in the raw. Living near Morpeth which had its own problems a year before, I have sympathy with the residents.

    Amazing, really beautiful – sparing a thought for all those people who lost homes, (and the family who lost a loved one) as a result though

    Wow….someone call Al Gore real quick. He needs to turn on that global warming he keeps forcing down our throats. All this cold weather and rain….
