A Very High Tide in Parkgate, Little Neston and Burton

Published: 6th December 2013 08:39

A rare sight greeted the many residents and visitors who had gathered to view the predicted High Tide at Parkgate on Thursday.

The inclement weather conditions - high winds and torrential rain - combined to create a storm surge with the tide coming up and over the wall for the first time in several years. 

Reports came in of 'wild waves' and small animals washed onto the the road.

Many of you have been sending in your photographs, here they are.....

A stunning shot from Anna Oakden, taken at around 2pm:

Burton

Meanwhile, down at Denhall Lane in Burton, the new Net's Café may be needing a new A board after the old one was last seen disappearing under the incoming tide.  Thanks to Teri Saxon for the three photos below.

The Harp - by the sea???

Also at The Harp, here's two from Ross Cameron, the second one showing several inches of water inside the pub.  Apparently his wife Sue had to give up her afternoon snooze to go and help clean up!

Two more near The Harp, this time from Rob Clive...locals desperately clearing the way to the pub!
