Everyone around Audlem knows of the River Weaver and Audlem Brook – see our stories yesterday of the two in flood – but fewer have heard of another small river that flows from the south into the Weaver very near to Audlem.
Our photo shows that very river, the Duckow and normally little more than a gently flowing stream, as it reaches the River Weaver. Our thanks to Norman Huntbach for the photograph.
Last night, the river levels were receding locally with the Weaver down from its near record height of 2.57mtr to 2.40mtr. With more rain forecast, however, many will be keeping an eye on water levels this week.
Do click on the photo to enlarge it.
You can check out more details of the River Weaver's level at the Whitchurch Road bridge by clicking here on this link to see the Environment Agency reports on the river level at Audlem, a website that was brought to our attention by Norman Huntbach.
