Is it wet

Anyone got any pics of my pitch on the left at stourport big bash site, I would imagine it's a tad soggy at the moment.

I must admit I was thinking just the same! I might have to borrow one of Phil's paddle boards to get around ;-)

Looking at pics of Bewdley, about 3 miles up, I'd guess you don't want to pitch up at Stourport just now. :(

Really feel for everyone caught up in the nightmare, wherever they are in the country.

That's what set me thinking Bob, it looks bad at Bradley, hope your brewery is ok.
Is there not a stourport action camera Geoff, thought they had one a few years ago.
Hope everyone's safe though, must be terrible being amongst it.

Thanks Geoff I meant Bewdley but corrective crap turned it into something else.

My pitch (until we were no longer allowed to pitch there) was right by the river bank :shock:

I wonder how that is looking at the moment 8-[

Fingers crossed Lickhill is coping.

Quite a few of the pubs I frequent are also under water at the moment: Lower Lode Inn, Tewkesbury; Boat Inn, Ashleworth; Rose & Crown, Severn Stoke (a good half mile from the river but on the flood plain). We were in Worcester a short while ago, and that's having problems. Trish's family is affected in Shrewsbury.

I think there is a family of otters on your pitch Ady :lol:

Wasn't it last year (maybe the year before) that the rally field was flooded only a few days before the bash but drained nicely just in time :?:

Last year the Severn came to within 10cm of flooding the field. We were staying at The Angel down by the canal basin watching and praying....

As for this year, there's some photos here: https://www.expressandstar.com/news/env ... der-water/

Hope the t-rex makes it.
Sounds bad if the access road to lickhill is struggling.
