The River Hiz bursts its banks and flows into Henlow Lakes and the New Arlesey Station Car Park

I parked in the new car park , this looks more like a lake with only the disabled spaces above water.

I looked over at the river and I could see where the river had burst its banks into the new car park

I started my walk down the public footpath inbetween the River Hiz and Helow Lakes

Lucky I had my wellies on as I had to wade throw a few inches of water.

The footpath to Henlow Grange was unwalkable because it is under deep water and looks like a river.

I carried on wading through a few inches of water.

After 10 metres or so I just had mud to contend with.

The heavy mud made the walk hard going.

This is the public footpath at the top of the first Henlow Lake , and where the river is still flowing into Henlow lake. Will all its fish escape down the river?

As I couldn’t walk any further due to deep water I had to turn back.

the above were april 2014 prices

I had my haircut today at Storm Guildford St Luton LU1 2NQ.

The owner Chris Plater comes from Stopsley.

STORM has been in Luton for five years and I would definitely recommend it.

It is the best haircut I have ever had.

The salon is very smart and upmarket yet the prices are very reasonable as you can see from the price list.

Storm is just passed the cheapest car park in Luton , and just before the Arndale centre coming from Hitchin.

It has MTV playing on flat screen TV’s on the walls and a painting of a Storm commissioned by a local Hitchin Artist.

Chris  has a young and talented assistant called Sharon working for him.

I took my wife with me and it was a very pleasant relaxed experience.

Highly recommended and very reasonable
