Frank of The Coffin Dodgers Cycling Club of Cumbria about to cross the quite narrow temporary bridge. This photo taken two months after the damage was caused by the Cumbria floods ...Still no attempt to repair ...that goes for most of the road damage around Keswick. This road has now just been completely closed on the 18th Feb.... it says for an indefinite period .!!!

Always wondered who the first voter is on the photos who always gives a three ?

I recall at the time of the floods the main item on TV news was a further runway at Heathrow. Now our leaders are engrossed in the Euro referendum and have no further capacity to do anything else. Do not build your hopes up. This is how it is going to remain for considerable time to come.
I have been cycling round south Lakes today and have encountered numerous road closures.

Yes your right ... Nothing is being done with the roads except some SLOW work on the Grasmere /Keswick road. The rest of the roads if not closed are full of dangerous potholes.. All the county council is doing around Keswick is making new FOOTPATHS next to the roads. hard to believe . !!

Your mention of Grasmere/ Keswick road the A591,prompts me to consider the development of Thirlmere Reservoir. At that time measures were put in place to increase the catchment. One of these was measures was to divert Raise Beck from its original destination of Grasmere to flow into Thirlmere ( Raise Beck start to the north of Seat Sandal/ south west of Dollywaggon Pike). Its original course is visible from the top of Dunmail Raise.
About 25 years ago after some heavy rain Raise Beck went back to its original destination. It was diverted again. Now just as the last straw broke the camels back, did the increased flow from the diversion of Raise Beck, lead the A591 being washed away?
