Looking northeast at works to improve flood defences at Long Itchington. See [LinkExternal link] for a view before the works; see [LinkExternal link] for a view of a flood at this point.

The course of the River Itchen is being diverted 25 metres south to make room for a wider higher embankment to protect the village. As well as realignment of the river, the scheme includes repairs to concrete flood defence walls and the establishment of a wetland nature reserve. The scheme is being carried out by the Environment Agency and work started in August 2009.
