Hi Roger

I really like this peaceful summer picture. The map is fascinating! So many watercourses to manage, and find your way around.

I had never associated this kind of thing with Somerset before! So, we learn from each other!

Best Wishes, HFF, and a good weekend
Peter

Once again I've managed to miss your FF image Roger.............but better late than never!
A fascinating shot and an equally fascinating PiP...........I hadn't realised how complicated it all was. I'm glad it all seems to be working though.

I suspect the planners who allowed developers to build houses on the natural floodplains all over the country could learn a lesson or two!

A much belated HFF sir.............I hope you've having a nice weekend.

Thank you once again Keith, all these water courses were built for sustainability but builders only interest is profit and they are aided far too often by short sighted planners.
