I think it's the dredging of the Lower Bure a that would help tbh. That's where the water would be held up, rather than above the bridge. I dare say some more learned souls will be along soon with a more comprehensive answer (hopefully)

Week before last the bridge had 7 ft clearance. Last week 6ft5 so I’m not sure what effect the dredging is supposed to have or has had. Air pressure which was 1060mb and rainfall and the state of the north see seem more obvious targets that hauling mud out of Hickling. I agree lower bure would be of more likely benefit as it would ameliorate the effects of North Sea and pressure.

1060mb??? I've been in aviation and sailing for 60 years and never heard of pressure that high! :default_icon_eek:
