Some photos of the flooding in Lizzie Gardens and Harnham Water Meadows.

This is a photo taken from ‘the Long Bridge’ that leads to the Town Path. It’s just to the right of where John Constable painted ‘Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows’[1]:

This is the Town Path itself. Not sure if it’s clear from the photo but water is pouring from the western bit of the meadow on the right onto the path:

The very water-y Harnham Water Meadows looking from Salisbury to Harnham:

Summerlock stream in Elizabeth Gardens has burst its banks:

Finally a snap of the Big Church across the meadow:
