Photographs were taken by DS, Oscar and Gillian Winsey, Michael Wright, Rene Green, Harry Grenville, Peter Cox, Dave Drake and others unknown.
DS originally gathered some 150 photographs of the Frome in flood for an Environmental Agency project and they have proved useful when newcomers declare 'I've not seen the river as high as this before!'
The road no longer floods near the village hall as WDDC and the NFU, who we collectively blamed for the problem, (A37 improvements and pig farming) were persuaded to put in drainage under the road..  If you look from the village hall car park you can see just how big a drain was required
The bicycle against the railings has no lights but does have a white painted mudguard.  The boy is sitting on one of the horizontal gate pillars so possibly the American troops were in Frampton Park.  The photo is a copy of a scan hence poor resolution

The River Frome runs through the length of the village and looks very pleasant most of the year.  It does, however, have a habit of getting over excited when  there are heavy or prolonged rainfalls as these pages show

The Weir
The Weir
Meanwhile at Madjeston, water swept down to and across the Sydling road and flooded the watercress beds.  It dug a trench up to 6ft deep across the field and deposited the contents plus the surface of the field in the road
Sandways Bridge and the Millennium Green were a bit damp as well

Photos taken 20th December.  Not as bad as July but it is continuing to rain hard and the water was similar to these on the 22nd having a day to retreat a little

Peacock Lodge track, WW2 pillbox and Frampton Park

The 'sunk into the ground' pillbox here fills up with water but the original ancient Peacock Lodge doesn't flood which goes to show its builders had more sense than so many modern ones.  The water, in fact, isn't very deep as you can see by the grass edges to the track but is fast flowing so can look quite alarming further toward the stone bridge
Grimstone to Muckleford:
The figures in the distant have abandoned cars and are being escorted to Muckleford by the Water Board official. The driver could probably have got through but the pipes pumping water across the road back to the river from the electric and gas stations were across the lane
the further telegraph post marks the bridge and the course of the river

Stratton Playing Field, road to Bradford Peverill and the Wrackle alongside the A37 but not in it for a change
It is raining hard again and the wind is rising as I load these photographs which were taken at low tide
Road to Muckleford, the car only made it to the first bridge. There's a rather deep dip between the first and second bridge
Track to Littlewood, this vehicle made it to the A356 easily enough
Electricty sub station just above water level at this stage but the gas line is well under

along the A356 through Frampton
The concrete road makes it easier to walk along here even when it is flooded.  Previously there were quite few holes to catch out the unwary.You need wellies though where the flow rate increases with a  slight drop to the main meadows. As Frampton is on chalk geology, the water drains away very rapidly.
Notton does its own thing
