The lack of water in the land is at its most noticeable in the streams of the northern forest, smaller catchment areas and minimal rain have contributed to several streams being reduced to gravel tracks.  Linford Brook is one such stream, the water still runs, but now invisible to the eye, below sun dried stones, occasionally pooling in dark stagnant ponds.  Most of Linford Brooks tributaries are completely dry, the pond on Greenford Bottom, which earlier in the year overflowed with tadpoles, is nothing more than a rapidly drying mud hole. Makes you think about water, I'm reasonably sure that at some point the rains will come and the brook will flow strongly once again, what must it be like not to be sure......shit.
