After some torrential rain last week, we woke up to find the Arrowe Brook had burst its banks again – almost exactly 7 years to the day since last time.

This time was worse, though, and – as usual – the authorities are blaming the unusually high rainfall. The Environment Agency rate this area as Zone 2 which means the possibility of flooding somewhere between once in a 100 years and once in a 1000 years.







According to our local Councillor’s website, he found a spot on the Arrowe Brook which had been dammed to allow a contractor’s vehicles to cross. The “experts” claim that substituting the usual 6 feet x 6 feet channel with a couple of 12″ land drain pipes wouldn’t have affected the water flow! Yeah right and pigs might fly.
