The West country is suffering after recent rains, videos uploaded to Youtube (removed Apr 2013) showed surface water flowing down Station Road in Bovey Tracey after several days - perhaps weeks - of excessive rain. More than 5 inches of rain has fallen on Dartmoor in the past 4 days - according to Dartcom.
One Youtube video shows a Land Rover heading towards, and returning from, the swollen River Bovey passing a crowd of onlookers gathered outside letterboxer's favourite - The Dolphin Hotel - late last night.
The weather this past week has been bad enough to keep WITC away, and we are still to site our Christmas walk. More news to follow.
