River Nene walk – Ausrine – 5T

5 06 2017

Three weeks ago, 5T went on a river walk to find out some interesting facts. We walked all the way to Beckets park and this is what I found out:
Carlsberg brewery used to be another brewery a hundred years ago. Across the river there now are flats but a hundred years ago there were lots of timber yards and saw mills. Did you know that Beckets park was once a meadow called the cow meadow? Maybe it was called that because Morrisons – once a cattle market – was right next to it. In 1998 the River Nene flooded caused by torrential rain. There were six weeks rainfall in only one day. To find out more visit this link below:
