Serious flooding last occurred in this area in 2000. Picture shows Rudhall Brook thundering down towards the Wye after recent heavy rain.
A 350m tunnel is being constructed (termed an inverted siphon)10m underground. Channel widening will take place lower down the brook, a culvert will be constructed near the caravan park and another will be erected below the railway embankment at Chatterley Brook.
