Unbelievable localised flooding but Yorkshire Dales is open!
In Leyburn yesterday when the unbelievable storm hit! Never seen so much flooding so quickly & the noise from the marble-sized hailstones was deafening on the car! The on-call Leyburn North Yorkshire Fire Service were brilliant helping so many, despite their fire station being flooded too.
The flooding including Andrew's elderly parents road, who have just moved into their new bungalow, immediately behind where the first photo below is taken. As the road tarmac has not yet been laid, the raised ironworks meant the water just couldn't flow into the drains but straight down the road. The firefighters worked through the night to pump out the water. No damage & all safe. Phew! Bit close & unfortunate timing.
Leyburn, Bellerby and especially Grinton & Reeth got it all. Take a look here to see the unbelievable photos in Swaledale.
Just down the road at our cottages and our home in West Burton & Newbiggin - just a bit of heavy rain, nothing more.
Thank you to sooooo many of our friends and guests who have contacted us today check all OK. Our thoughts are with those who have had homes & businesses damaged & wrecked. Thankfully no-one injured.
