Had a trip into Valley Entrance on Monday, fairly damp in the roof tunnel and the pitch was well sprayed. Knee deep at the bottom, with the master cave waist deep and going like the clappers. Tried bridging and fighting our way up but gave up before the junction. Fluming back to the pitch was quick cold fun! Climbing out I noticed sump foam only a metre from the top of the pitch... Guess it got very wet!Has anyone seen it in this state or worse? Was the rising making a plume?Kingsdale beck was flowing and plenty of standing pools in the fields. On the drive in from the M6 / J34 the river Lune was filling the flood plain as bad as I have ever seen it for decades
Thanks for the replies; clearly Cumbria has been 'dumped on' big time.
But dropping already. The nearest rain gauge (Keswick) on weatheronline only shows 2mm in last 12 hours.
For interest the Hydro plant at Settle has recorded the highest generation in the month of October since it opened.
