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.
