Water Meadows Beside the Colne
Water Meadows Beside the Colne
These water meadows beside the River Colne are unlikely to ever flood again in the near future due to the TL8031 : Halstead: Flood Storage Area embankment you can see the embankment in the distance behind which will form a large lake to protect Halstead from flooding. The Environment Agency estimate that only about every 75 years will it be necessary to allow these meadows to flood as the final fallback to protect the town from inundation Halstead suffered from floods in 1987, 1979 and 2000.
