What an unnecessary and stupid response to a perfectly sensible question.

It's all about the Ouse as it's level is several ft. higher than the level of the Foss, which is protected behind the Castle Mills flood barrier. If the barrier wasn't there then most of the Huntington Road area would be well underwater.

If anyone's interested I have photos taken Weds/Thurs, including 2 showing the height difference on both sides of the flood barrier, on my facebook page....

I went down the sustans route on Wednesday evening and it's not affected. Amazing view from the swing bridge though.

The A19 has been so quiet the last few days though, we should close it more often!

views from the wheel are actually dissapointing - I went up on Wednesday out of interest and, apart from the Clifton flood plains you can't really see a lot more. Better views (and cheaper, plus no time limit) can be got from going up Clifford's Tower.

Not to mention the planning numpties and the developers who want to build houses on the very area that is currently under water.

You culdn't make it up - take note CofYC - it's about time you stop giving permission to develop on flood plains because even the largest developers in the country are unable to divert the Ouse!

As for anistasia, there is no flooding on the Foss and Huntington Road is clear - that's why all the pictures are of the Ouse!

Route 30 – Not directly affected.

Route 31, 31X – Not directly affected.

A FLOODED country road between Newton-on-Ouse and Linton-on-Ouse, near Easingwold, began collapsing – but some motorists and cyclists still tried to use it.

North Yorkshire County Council said the edge of the road near a bridge over a beck subsided after being flooded by the River Ouse.

Strangely conflicting entries. Are the buses flying over the Linton Road bridge?

Serious absence of good information on road flooding and closures from North Yorks County Council and Radio York if you live in the Tollerton, Newton on Ouse, Linton on Ouse, Alne areas.

Yes. If this means the Stephenson's service between York and Easingwold via Linton, I rang them today and was told it's NOT running.

As I travelled over the river bridge which is on the northern ring road between the Wetherby Whaler and the A19 roundabouts at about 3:30pm this afternoon, I saw a guy windsurfing on the flood waters, on the fields behind the sewage works.

Did anyone else see this or was I just hallucinating?
