Flood defence works, Mytholmroyd

Flood defence works, 7/11/18

Not actually a third monochrome shot in a row, although it might as well be on a dull, grey November day. Nearly three years after Mytholmroyd (along with much of the rest of the Calder Valley) was sunk beneath more than two metres of water on 26th December 2015, the stable door is finally being bolted — so we have been told — thanks to massive flood defence works. These pile drivers and giant screwdrivers currently occupy¬† half the carriageway of the main road in the village, and at the moment their main effect is to have created a year-long traffic jam along the A646.
