River Ash Floods
Priory Green, Staines, Middx. Mon 10 Feb 2014
View north from Priory Green towards the railway
The River Ash runs mainly under Priory Green before the parked cars
There was an almost clear strip along the centre line of the road where I could walk without getting wet feet
A rather expanded River Ash
I hadn't put on waterproof shoes so I stopped a short distance along the road rather than get my feet wet
There is a depth gauge here, but I've never been able to make much sense of it.
It seems to be reading around 0.3, but the markings are only a few inches apart (perhaps at 10cm intervals.)
I'd guess the post comes up around a metre from the current water level.
A narrow section of dry road
Itls often muddy to the right, but seldom an actual lake
Traffic was heavier than usual on Kingston Road, perhaps because Staines Bridge is still open while some others are close
It is now a private river rather than a private road to Manor Place
