I can’t think of it as town, officially it is. But whatever you call it, Whaley Bridge in the High Peak of Derbyshire, is facing is biggest ever crisis. The dam of the reservoir above the village holding 300m gallons of water, has started to fail.
and the town has been evacuated. We are safe, well above the flood zone, and we’ve family, two dogs and a rabbit staying with us.
It’s a fast changing and unprecedented situation.
