REGARDING Lindow Moss. Thank you to Councillor Dodson and Chris Neill’s supportive letters in last week’s paper.
We did actually make it onto the local TV news on Christmas eve.! The morning and lunchtime news carried a full report, unfortunately a very shortened report was shown on the evening bulletins due to the extra coverage of the flooding. This was ironic as when the BBC reporter asked Croghan Peat why it thought our land had subsided (if not due to the peat extraction) they said it was due to lack of rainfall.!
I have checked the records and local rainfall has stayed constant for the last 20 years.
