Degrees of flooding at Eye Mead, Dorset Stour.

The flat Dorset Stour floodplain is only viewable at Eye Mead, half a mile downstream from Bear Mead. Here are photos of different degrees of flooding, taken from the same viewpoint at Little Pamphill Green, OS ref: ST 995-002
Note: On the floodplain 850 metres South of the bridge lies Lake Farm Roman fortress. How did 4,500 soldiers deal with the flooding?
