Recent heavy rain.

We've had heavy rain recently, especially last weekend, when it rained for 36 hours.   No actual flooding in our area but, when we get prolonged  heavy rain, all the water seeps down from the Lincolnshire Wolds, into the rivers and out to the coast.
I went along to where the Louth Canal flows out to sea and found the banks breached and a very high water level.

This was taken in January this year at the weir where the Louth Canal becomes
the Teney Haven just a couple of miles from the North Sea.  The water level is about 
the average for most of the year.

The same spot/view taken a couple of days ago.  The concrete apron to the left, which 
anglers fish from, is under a few feet of flood water and the central pier & weir out of site.
Both banks of the river where people walk dogs are flooded.

Looking back in the opposite direction the view is quite sedate.
