College Valley - water meadows
After the heavy rains in early August 2011 the valley was vert green and awash with water. The old river
bed which was left high and dry when the July 2009 floods diverted the river just below Whitehall offered a good
opportunity for exploration.

and here is the old river bed
and here is the old river bank deeply eroded
and finally the new stile at the end of the meadow as you walk upstream from Hethpool Mill
