High tide at Rickmansworth

There are long stretches of towpath under water at Rickmansworth.

And below, I took this photo from the 'aqua park' near the canal. The boat at the back is on the canal and water is gushing from the canal onto the parkland.

It's been a day of finding out just how waterproof my boots and shoes are. The answer is Not At All!

Denham very deep

Not only is the water flowing over the top of denham deep lock, the river alongside the lock cottage is spreading across the tearoom's garden there. Fingers crossed it subsides before reaching the house. I do feel for anxious water-watchers everywhere.
