BRIDGWATER NEWS: High tide on the River Parrett
PHOTOGRAPHER Jeff Searle was out and about on Thursday (January 4, 2018) to take pictures of the high tide on the River Parrett in Bridgwater town centre.
Heavy rainfall and strong winds of up to 70mph prompted the high tide with the water nearly reaching the road surface at West Quay and Eastover.
Sedgemoor District Council installed the flood barrier in Blake Gardens in Bridgwater in advance of the high tides and weather warnings as a precautionary measure to make sure that homes in St Saviours Avenue were protected.
The barrier was due to be removed on Friday (January 5, 2018).
