Beautiful Britain, take a look around - where 'waving woods and waters wild do hymn an autumn sound'

By EMILY ALLEN

Huge waves over the Cobb at Lyme Regis in Dorset on a very high tide following the low pressure that passed over the country overnight

Autumn gales whipped up the waves as 60mph winds and hide tides battered Britain's coastline today.
Huge waves crashed onto seafronts up and down the country after gale force winds churned up the sea, created by an area of low pressure which has been hovering over the country.
For many it followed a night of heavy rain which left roads flooded and impassable in parts of Hertfordshire, Berkshire and Cumbria.

Worrying: The stormy weather and heavy rain plus rising high tides caused Whitehaven in Cumbria to flood today

The band of wet weather, which began in the South West of England at midnight last night, has been moving steadily north all day and is currently drenching parts of Northern Ireland and Scotland.
But across the rest of the country, a combination of beautiful sunrise, brown, red and golden leaves and in Scotland, a frosty morning, served up a delight for photographers and nature lovers.

Beauty: The morning sun creates a dramatic display of stunning colours over Malmesbury, Wiltshire this morning

The words of Elizabeth Barrett Browning may have come to mind for those with distant memories of English lessons.
In 1833, her first lines of a poem entitled simply, The Autumn, read: 'Go, sit upon the lofty hill, And turn your eyes around, Where waving woods and waters wild, Do hymn an autumn sound.'
The good residents of Otterbourne in Hampshire may have woken a little less cheery than most, having endured the most rain, with 23mm falling - almost a quarter of the expected levels for October.
