Farndon Fields after heavy rain, Market Harborough
England

A large puddle at the end of a ditch in the north-west corner of Farndon Fields, Market Harborough, England. The River Welland runs alongside part of the field, and can sometimes cause flooding of the area.

Farndon Fields is currently under development, and the developers have built a number of flood defences, which seem to have coped well with the April rain so far. The ditch area at the north of the field shown here is probably not complete yet (since it doesn't go anywhere).

To the north of the field is an embankment that used to carry the Rugby and Stamford Railway line. Currently it is used as pasture for a few farm animals, in this image a couple of bullocks can be seen.

    More About Europe

    Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
