The flooding was reported in the PARISH EMERGENCY PLAN/DIRECTORY for Parish Councils in the district of EAST LINDSEY DISTRICT COUNCIL. NAME OF PARISH: Bolingbroke. PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PLAN: Mrs Wendy Done (Clerk).

The report said - Old Bolingbroke because of its low lying location surrounded by hills is at risk from water courses overflowing into the village. The following locations are considered most at risk as identified following the severe flooding in 1986 & 2007:
a) Moat Lane Beck prone to overflowing vicinity of The Watermill.
b) Back Lane - Beck prone to overflowing vicinity of Normandy Farm.
c) Hagnaby Road Dykes in Hareby Lane and Hagnaby Road prone to flooding from near the junction of Hareby Lane southwards to Kings Court.
d)Horncastle Hill Flooding can occur at the foot of hill near the War Memorial which contributes to the problem at c) above.
e) West Keal Road Flooding can occur at the foot of the hill in the vicinity of Holly Cottage.
f) Hagnaby Road Dykes in the vicinity of Glebe Cottage prone to overflowing.

The links to these photographs of the floods have been removed from the Parish Council website, so there is no point in taking any more photographs of the village. If you wish to register a complaint with the council, on my behalf, please do.
