Rookery Road pathway flooding

footpath flooding

Recent heavy rain has run off the fields between the Vine public house and the start of the Wom Brook Walk, at the eastern section of the Brook in Wombourne. The above photo, taken by a committee member of the Friends of Wom Brook shows the extent of the flooding and the subsequent damage to the Wom Brook Walk. South Staffordshire Council’s landscape department have been informed.

There has been some substantial on earthing going on down by the brook recently. I am not 100% sure on this but my thoughts are that it is either for the planting of wild flowers or to help Bees who nest in that sort of habitat. What do you think, send us your views on it!
