Skellow Mill Pond Refills

The observant chaps who trot by Skellow Mill pond will have noticed the mill pond is fast being refilled.

Despite the wierd weather, which relocated our entire rainfall allowance to southern France (apparently n’owt to do with Brexit) the River Skell albeit tiny in the nature of rivers has continued to flow throughout the summer. The civil engineering which diverted the flow to temporarily bypass the pond has been reversed. Offa’s dyke has been breached and the mill pond is almost full again.

Great news to the ducks, swans and moorhens that swim about the place. If you have a squizz through the trees and bushes you can see the natural world order has been regained. And breathe.
