Flooded Crantit valley

Photo taken 26th 10 2006, the Crantit Canal and valley flooded from the foot of the Holm Branch, out to near Scapa beach road. This was after high tides, strong Northerly winds and torrential rain, causing flooding all over areas of Kirkwall near sea level and the Papdale housing area. Added by Phil Brough.

No doubt Steven didn't straighten the picture while he was at it in the hope that the water would eventually drain away downhill. (Judging by his caption for Craig Taylor's Statsraad Lehmkuhl, he's a bit of a stickler for the straight-and-level.)
