River Derwent at Cockermouth

This is the view of the River Derwent from the foot bridge at the end of Bridge Street in Cockermouth. We were walking back to my cousins house from the town centre to the other side of the river. The bridge pictured is Gote Road, otherwise known as the A5086, which I believe was badly damaged in the recent floods. This photograph is a few years old now and, according to my cousin, they now have improved flood defences.
