I considered branching out and crossing the fields though the deep mud and amount of water laying on the grass convinced me to stick to the tarmac. Even the roads were pretty wet in places and I ended up having a paddle on a couple of occasions. The worst flood I had to negotiate was through the hamlet of St. Brides on my route back toward Magor.
