In the recent record floods it was impossible for the Ross Angling Club to save their boats and hut from the deluge. Fortunately the bankside trees and bushes prevented the boats from being swept away this time which was the fate of the previous boats. The floods did wreck the boat stands and fill the hut with mud.
It appears the hut suffered only superficial damage but we have yet to have a proper inspection as the Wye remains high and likely to reflood at some stage. The water got to a height of about 4ft inside the hut but fortunately did not get to the height of any electrics.
But spring is just round the corner and for those who get out of the house for a walk can soon come across lifting sights like the one I found on the River bank in the photo below.
