Much Wenlock: The Shylte Brook

After the severe flash flooding in the Cornish town of Boscastle in 2004, the Environment Agency was tasked with looking at other catchments around the country that would behave in a similar manner should conditions prevail.  A number of other catchments have been identified and the Shylte Brook, running through Much Wenlock, is one of them. Further details are here and and there’s also a useful map showing the course of the Shylte and Sytche brooks, before they flow into the Farley brook and down the valley towards the River Severn.
