River Sence floods up to the entrance of The Manor pub in Glen Parva…
This photo (above) was taken by an EYE reader at 0900hrs on Monday 30th April at the approach to the Manor public house in Glen Parva.
The River Sence is a tributary of the larger River Soar. The River Sence can be traced eastwards up to the village of Billesdon, and then flows south west through Great Glen, and then west (south of Wigston and South Wigston) until its confluence with the River Soar just to the west of Blaby.
Tracing the River Sence upstream, the Environment Agency does monitor the river between Blaby and Great Glen, and apart from the recent spat of heavy rain, there has been no significant flooding in recent years.
