More about this scene

The River Arrow meanders over a wide flood plain and most villages in the area sit well above its banks. However Eardisland, for some reason, is situated right beside the river. Its name is thought to derive partly from a Welsh word 'llion' meaning floods, and perhaps the floods and the marshy land around about was originally an advantage, enabling the villagers to hide from attackers.
