27 January 2008 - Sutton Bingham

The final stop on my cycle ride.

The first view of the reservoir on my approach from Halstock. Not much water considering all the rain of late!

A closer look at the channel made by the flowing river.

The Norman church of All Saints.

_MG_4447

Virtually empty on the western side of the causeway.

Also incredibly low on the eastern side.

A closer look at the dam. Whilst cycling past this on the way home I discovered the reason for the low water. Wessex Water are carrying out 5M of maintenance work on the dam to extend its life. To do this they must have drained down the water.
