Floods Along The Great River Ouse
November 29, 2012 • Leave a Comment
Floods are inevitable along our stretch of the Great River Ouse in St Ives. Infact this is the second time this year that the river has breached the banks and created a lake feature where there should be a meadow and grazing livestock. Fortunately the authorities have spent a good deal of money over the years to make sure properties in the area are protected and that only fields take the full force of the water.
The Dolphin Hotel (above) is next to the river and the meadow, but perches many of it's rooms on concrete stilts - affording a glorious view to those lucky patrons. If it was me staying there, it would definitely be beer o'clcok on the balcony at sunset and feeding the swans.
The only negative if you want to stay at The Dolphin Hotel now, is that their car park is lake!
