River Exe Flooding

Today saw the River Exe here in Exeter at exceptional high levels after a week of wet weather, I went down just after dawn to get a few shots...

This shot really brings the increase in height of water home

This is the ferry crossing, the cable is usually around shoulder height

The scene just after dawn, the water was still rising

The transit shed

At it's height the water completely covered the cobbled road

People carried on with their usual pursuits

Quite a few sightseers today

News reports and police warnings, may be more to come?

The old Mediaeval bridge has seen it all before

That's all for today

Bampton Fair Devon

Yesterday I went to Bampton Charter Fair for the first time, it won't be the last either. It consists of a pony, fur and feathers auction, music, street stalls, street performers, crafts and fun fair. As usual little words, the photographs can do the talking...

The Pony, Fur and Feathers auction

Bampton Street Stalls

Punch & Judy show

as usual Punch meets a sticky end

Street music and food

Bampton Players

this was a very drawn out death

One man band (well, 2 actually)

Finally ended up in the pub and got to enjoy some Gypsy music

and dancing
