The River Trent: The images in this grid below form a selection of images taken on and around the hamlet of Coates just to the North of Cottam.  These images were made during late 2023 when the river was in serious flood and many banks had burst, the water flooding the plains according to plan.  There was a degree of flooding on this West side of the Trent and the drains and ditches had been full.  The Trent had reached the flood bank and looked menacing.
