Footpath to Mill Lane bridge 29 March 2024

From the Environment Agency:

Flooding is possible - be prepared.


Updated 11:36am on 12 April 2024


Groundwater levels across the the Plain and the Wiltshire Downs remain high meaning that flooding is still possible after even moderate amounts of rainfall.


Our groundwater forecasts indicate that most sites will continue to see a general recession over the next few days.



Groundwater Flood Warnings are still in force for the Till, Chitterne, Wylye, Dene valleys and for communities along the Bourne downstream of Cholderton.


Flooding of roads is possible and septic tanks may not function effectively over the coming days.


Householders with property flood resilience measures such as pumps, barriers and air-brick covers should keep them in place until the risk recedes.


Environment Agency staff will continue to monitor the situation. This Flood Alert will remain in force for the next few days at least and will be updated should the forecast change.


Flood alert area: Boscombe, Cholderton, Collingbourne Ducis, Hanging Langford, Hindon, Hurdcott, Idmiston, Newton Tony, Orcheston, Porton, Salisbury, Shipton Bellinger, Shrewton, Stratford Sub Castle, Tidworth, Tilshead, Tisbury, Wilton, Winterbourne Stoke and Woodford.
