I can remeber the road 'twixt Bicknells Bridge and Muchelnet being flooded when I was about 12 and trying (unsuccessfully) to cycle through it.

That was in the days when the Jotchams stinking animal guts processing plant was nearby so you have an idea how long ago I'm talking about...

Once in 200 year event Muchelney flooding? I don't think so, Sir Graham Watson... I saw it when you were probably widdling into your terry nappy.

Global warming in Britain! tsunamis are becoming ever more frequent, Hurricanes destroying the coast of America, with the ice caps melting and an increase in water levels this isn't going to get any better!
