Empty canal filled by downpour
The heavy rain meant that there was water in a disused canal at Combe Hay for the first time in 12 years.
Lock 15 of the Somersetshire Coal Canal was last "in water" in 2000.
During the 100-year lifetime of the canal, the lock flight at Combe Hay carried up to 22 boatloads of coal each day from the coalfields of the Cam Valley to join the Kennet and Avon Canal at Dundas at Monkton Combe.
The lock flight was drained after being formally abandoned in 1904, but it occasionally refills after very heavy rain.
