River Greta, Keswick, Cumbria

Rainwater flowing fast away from the fells in the River Greta at Keswick. The power of flowing water is impressive, just as much in smooth laminar flow as roaring rapids. The Greta has flooded many times causing much distress and damage. Many precautions and flood defences have been put in place, these were coping successfully at the time of my photos: the river was flowing freely at nearly two metres depth at Greta Bridge, pretty much as the river level forecast had indicated.
