in a homage to Dod's work on the High roads, I found a link for all the known fords and wet roads in the country, just enter and click on your county, only had a quick play but looks good.
Enjoy

Its already on here somewhere but for those who haven't seen it its a great way to spend a day on the bike i marked out a route in my area and went to find them most of the fords are off the beaten track and make interesting scenic rides with the added challenge of finding them :thumbup: me bike also features in some of the photos on there


Edit
haven't been on there in a while so had a look how many i'm in and blow me i got every bike in there, all you do is look at the fords in your area that have no photos ride there take a photo and send it to [email protected] and he will update the site with your photo I think hes only doing it once a year now though.

LOL poor Paul that must have been cold I noticed your crossing on the down stream side same as me i think upstream would be easier as there not so much of the slippery slab rock in there only trouble is its deeper than the bike there :D

Not in the ford database some very wet roads.
The Severn at eight severn(ths) on the west side of the river north of Gloucester. One of my routes up the west bank of the Severn from Asleworth to Tirley over Haw bridge and past Wainloads. Area very well covered, I had just expected a few bits of water a few inches deep along some of the lanes - wrong a few feet The lane I normally use is by the signpost!
