    1. It’s silt and mud washed off riverbanks upstream, Lizzie, rather than peat — there’s peat on some of the uplands but not in a position to colour the water here. The Usk at this point, about 20 miles on its journey to the sea, is 60 metres above sea level and not particularly sluggish, especially when swollen by continuous rain.
