From up on Mendip you could look down over the village of Westbury-sub-Mendip and see large areas of water shining in the bright sunlight.
It was time to take a closer look, so I drove down the hill and parked near Lodge Hill.
Dividing Westbury Moor are two parallel tracks that end in the middle of nowhere. At the point the tracks split there is a bench with view across the fields.
Having already got my feet wet just reaching the bench I decided to take the right-hand track which looked like it would be a lot dryer.
The track is called Long Drove – and it lives up to its name.
Soon the fields surrounding the drove were covered in flood water.
Much to the delight of the birds.
A long line of cattle walk back to the farm in front of Chalcroft Hill.
