Click here to see the river Teign at Fingle bridge in full spate! This was the river Teign along the Teign gorge on Monday 3rd at 14:30. The Christmas period had not been dry, so when there was a prolonged deluge of rain from Sunday night until Monday lunch time, this was the result. The meadow was now a water meadow, weirs disappeared under thunderous white water and we had a hairy moment driving along a section of path 23 inches underwater. The arches of Fingle Bridge came close to being enveloped but the tough old bird has undoubtedly seen worse than this. I frequently marvel at how well engineered the bridges around Dartmoor are, and by the looks this, a good thing to!
