Worcester Racecourse

It floods pretty well every year. Here the water was receding (taken January 19th)

Ideal for seahorses, then?
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha very good Graeme

I suppose the horses have swimming races, Bill...
Perhaps they should think of boating races!

Good that there is enough place for flooding - your photo reminds me of Hollandshire.
Bill Phillips: The racecousre floods every year Philine, as does the cricket ground

Looks like a boating lake, Bill. I had a view of the Somerset Levels yesterday
Bill Phillips: This is nothing by comparison....did you get pictures?
The birds are enjoying it

Ahh yes - I remember seeing this very close to the river. Flood plain innitt!
Bill Phillips: Floods as does the cricket ground pretty well every year

Fabulous pano image, Bill. You're inspiring me to try it one day (even though I've been saying that for years!). smile

Could make for interesting racing Bill.
Bill Phillips: Going good to soft
A puddle compared to Somerset.
Bill Phillips: Indeed Mick. The racecourse floods pretty well every year and much more so than this picture shows. Somerset is taking a hammering.

The jockeys get off and swim to the finish line. I like the composition.
Bill Phillips: The whole racecourse was under water at one stage

Perhaps it could be used as an alternative venue for the Henley Regatta? I could just see all those striped blazers and the Pimms.
Bill Phillips: We don't want any Southern Riff Raff in Worcestershire
I've never taken a panorama shot - this looks ideal for it, Bill smile
Bill Phillips: I don't do many. Mind you most cameras seem to have a pano mode these days. My DSLR doesn't but my little compact does. This one I did from a number of pictures stitched together in a freebie bit of software!
A nice landscape Bil!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ronky. In the 37 years I have lived in Worcestershire I have never been to a race meeting here!
I'm surprised they've not moved the racecourse to dryer grounds, Bill. Excellent panorama of the region.
Bill Phillips: It has been a racecourse since 1718 Beverly so I hope they don't move it now!
I had read that Worcester was in danger of some flooding a while ago, perhaps it is just as well there are areas like this to take the overflow, I guess they never schedule any midwinter race meetings.
Bill Phillips: Pitchcroft always floods as does the cricket ground. There have been many major floods in Worcester over the centuries.

life's rich tapestry
Bill Phillips: Indeed comrade.
A wonderful pano Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Richard.
panoramic worcestershire Bill, a 360ยบ flood makes an island!
Bill Phillips: I know we live on one smile
I seem to remember good flood views from A4440 several times on route to Wales
Bill Phillips: We get a lot of flooding....I blame the Welsh sending all that water down the Severn
