Having spent much of May wishing for rain we now have almost an embarrassment of riches and it would be nice if it dried up for a bit. Yesterday was foul (chicken weather !!). The only bright spot was watching several hundred thoroughly miserable soaking wet Three Peaks walkers tramping through Horton look murderous. It really can’t have been much fun on the tops. It wasn’t a great deal of fun here in the valley.
However, thanks to the deluge the river is in fine fettle and if the stiff breeze that’s presently making it feel more like October ceases overnight there should be good fishing tomorrow.
Be warned that the B6479 through Horton will be closed on 15 and 16 June for resurfacing. Be prepared for this to go on a good deal longer. There are still large areas of Newhouses lane waiting for top-dressing that should have been completed on 6 June.
