Aprils Wiggenhall Waves.

I've been looking the charts of moon patterns and tides and can safely say we are in for real treat over the next week with regards to tidal waves on the River Great Ouse.  The times and dates are for best viewing from Wiggenhall St Mary Magdalen and in particular from the bridge by the Cock public house in Church Road. Good weather and warm evenings will mean lots of people so stick to the footpaths, park sensibly and please please please do not go near the water.  The nearest train station is Watlington which is a 8 minute walk. Parking is available for patrons of the pub or in the car park by the bridge over the Relief Channel.  I have predicted the times based upon a series of moon patterns, tide times and Fen lore.  You might want to arrive 20 minutes early as I have been known to miscalculate.  Later this year I will be holding a wave watching charity event for scottys llittle soldiers so please keep an eye for details. There will be a bar, live music and a bbq garden party on the River Bank on June 23rd.  Everyone welcome.
