People walking on the old Powick bridge during peak flows are putting a lot of faith 17th (?) century engineering.

Its a shame that health and safety (council) have stopped us ROWING on pitch croft. it's great experience for new rowers and gives them chance to experience the floods in a different way :(…. please reconsider allowing us to row on pitch croft its just the same as rowing on the river and our rowers know where the river bank ends and the river starts?
