Detailed flood risk information for this area

Rivers and sea icon

The flood risk from rivers or the sea is low

What this means

Low risk means that each year this area has a chance of flooding of between 0.1% and 1%. This takes into account the effect of any flood defences in the area. These defences reduce, but do not completely stop the chance of flooding as they can be overtopped, or fail.

How to use this information

You can use this information to see which areas are more likely to flood first, deepest, or most often.

This information is suitable for identifying which parts of towns or streets are at risk, or have the most risk. It's also suitable for identifying the approximate extent and depth of flooding. It's likely to be reliable for a local area but not for identifying individual properties at risk.

Planning a development

This information is not suitable for use in land-use planning. If you’re planning a development, you must use the Risk of Flooding for Land-Use Planning (Rivers and Sea) for England or Development Advisory Map for Wales. This is information based on flooding without defences.

Surface water icon

The flood risk from surface water is medium

What this means

Medium risk means that each year this area has a chance of flooding of between 1% and 3.3%. Flooding from surface water is difficult to predict as rainfall location and volume are difficult to forecast.

How to use this information

You can use this information to see the approximate areas that would flood, and which parts would be shallower or deeper.

This information is suitable for identifying which parts of towns or streets are at risk, or have the most risk. It's also suitable for identifying the approximate extent and depth of flooding. It's likely to be reliable for a local area but not for identifying individual properties at risk.

Groundwater icon

High groundwater levels may cause flooding

Flooding and disruption is possible in the local area when groundwater levels are high.
