Bridleway I30 offers a very wet route across the flood plain from Slash Lane to Silbey Road in Mountsorrel.  This is the start in Slash Lane, Barrow upon Soar..

Slash Lane at its junction with Sileby Road.  The sign is a bit of an understatement!  My bike is standing on an elevated part of the road, the hubs are just above the water level.  I had to carry my bike for much of Slash Lane and Sileby Road as the water was up above my knees!

Slash Lane at its junction with Sileby Road.  The waves were due to the flow of the water coming off the fields and across the road.

The overflow car park for the Waterside Inn at Mountsorrel - overflow for boats?

Coming from Mountsorrel the flood in Sileby Road started just east of the Waterside inn.

Looking north from the canal bridge, the river has spread across the surrounding fields and almost covered them completely.

A sign that looks out of place on what was the canal bank!
