Upton Upon Severn, Floods, Feb 2014, Riverside 3

During the beginning part of 2014 the UK experienced strong storms that contained a lot of rain. This resulted in a large amount of danage across a wide swath of the UK. Upton Upon Severn is situated on the river Severn (as the name suggests) and most of the time is a plesent river running through the  town. Unfortunately at this time it was swolen by vast amounts of water coming from as far afield as Wales. By the time I took this the water levels had been this high (and slightly higher) for a considerible amount of time. Luckily for Upton Upon Severn a large amount of money had been spent of flood defences which you can see. If it wasn't for them I would be standing in deep water and houses would be flooded.

Interestingly only 24 hours after this was shot David Cameron visited Upton upon Severn to talk to the residents and see how well the flood defences were working.
