I took this photograph in January 2014 in a local village.
This winter much of this Lancashire village suffered severe flooding from the Rivers Yarrow and Douglas.
I don’t know if this particular property was affected but, judging by its proximity to the river, I suspect it may have been. We know people who live in the village and they report that things are just about getting back to normal now that their houses have dried out, though the local TV news tonight showed the Cumbrian town of Kendal where some homes will not be fully habitable for perhaps another year. One poor man has been living upstairs in a bedroom as the ground floor of his house is still totally wrecked.
