The Trent in flood ...

… at Shugborough
 The stream that joins the River Trent from the left is usually a footpath

 The confluence of the River Trent (on the right looking upstream) and the River Sow (middle water); the ‘river' on the right is ornamental for the Shugborough Estate.

 The field where we usually walk Molly is now a lake

 River Trent on the left and the lake on the right

 Looking over the ‘lake’ to the Tower of Winds

 Essex Bridge built in 1550 for Queen Elizabeth I when she came to visit - now only 14 of the original 40 arches still exist.

NB Rock ’n’ Roll on the Trent and Mersey Canal just a couple of meters from the river.
