  • The last episode of flooding on the 23rd December was the worst the residents have experienced. As you can see from the attached photo's the depth of water immediately outside their drive was 8 inches (20cm), and when a vehicle drove past the bow wave created went all the way up the drive to their garage door. This is a distance of 24 feet (8 metres).
