One question that I have often been asked over the years, especially when it was raining was does the river flood very often?
The answer is yes it does on a regular basis and depending on the amount of rain the level of the river can change dramatically.
This year Nene Park was quoted as saying that it’s one of the worst winters yet for flooding.
Here are three pictures taken a few years ago at Orton Mere showing how the river can overflow and how close it can get to the station.
The above show the waters flooding immediately behind platform 2.
As a visitor said to me a few years ago. It makes a change from photographing trains.
