The rain has eased considerably and could think of stopping soon . (1240hrs GMT)
I've been down to the campsite which has some BIG puddles and oombanjo is hopeful the weather will ease.
General traffic has been hid badly by localised flooding. From the Humber Bridge A164) the Willerby roundabout was under water and traffic at a crawl. Entering from North Cave, Walkington had flooding too.
I expect it's much the same from York (A1079)but believe it to be slightly clearer to the North.
There is a LOT of activity in Beverley this weekend.
A tribute band, 'The Kings of Queen' are due to perform up on the Westwood, (north west of town) on Saturday evening AND
the Final 'Walkington Hayride', 'Heavy Horses' drawing carts/carriages in Victorian style meander to Beverley and back on Sunday afternoon.
It's now 1255hrs and the rain has stopped (at my house), 2 miles north of the campsite. Fingers and toes crossed.
Hopefully all will enjoy what they can. I'm in my shorts and make no apology for my attire. Legs dry off so much quicker than soggy trousers! Wellies at the ready.I'm heading for the campsite about 1400hrs.
