News cup-erddig-flooded

The last week has seen some terrible snowy weather hit the area and the latest snowfall totally melted overnight as a warmer front arrived. This meltwater was accompanied with patches of heavy rain, causing flooding in and around the Wrexham area.

Steffan Carter sent us the above picture from Erddig of the scene Andrew Jones described to us as “Incredible amounts of water following in Erddig park, the cup and saucer has turned into a whirlpool”.

Earlier in the day trains were stopped from running between Wrexham General and Shrewsbury due to flooding in Gobowen, with other issues in Buckley causing problems northwards. Between Chester and Crewe a bus service was also provided due to flooding.
