The water level in Loe Pool reached a dangerous height this week after all the heavy rained that we had. The Enviroment Agency (who manage the water level of the pool) put in a series of pipes over the weekend to try and ease the pressure on the permenant overflow pipe. As the risk that Helston could flood was a possibility.
The three metal pipes are in sections to cope with the contours of the sand and travel from the pool to the sea on the western end of the beach.
The pool, which is the largest natural lake in Cornwall, has this week been one metre higher than normal, meaning that both the reed beds and bird hide have been flooded!
We also saw a pretty rainbow!
