Heavy overnight rain has caused flooding in Bradley Stoke’s Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve, leaving the two bridges by the “duck pond” almost totally submerged.
The path along Stoke Brook, between Brook Way and the duck pond, was this morning flooded to a depth of around three feet in places.
The area beneath the Bradley Stoke Way road bridge was particularly badly affected, blocking off the cycle route that comes down from The Bluebells and up towards the Leisure Centre.
Early morning road commuters were hit by flooding in Stoke Gifford and trains between Bristol Parkway and the south west were delayed because of flood damage in North Somerset.
Heavy rain is forecast to return to Bristol on Wednesday.
