Reading Room carpark 10 January 2024

16 January. Most of the water has drained away.




  • To avoid damaging property or soaking pedestrians, please drive slowly through the floodwater, in particular on Stratford Road near St Lawrence Church where there is now a 'Flooding' sign.

  • The pedestrian & cyclway underpass under the Ring Road by Waitrose has now been reopened.

  • The pedestrian & cycleway underpass at Castle Roundabout has been reopened.

  • Footpath to the Mill Lane pedestrian bridge - the water level on the footpath has dropped and is passable in wellingtons (waders no longer needed!).

  • The boardwalk through the Avon Valley Nature Reserve is closed.


There is a map of the flood area at the bottom of this page.


If you're concerned about flooding, read this advice from Duncan Hopkins, our local Flooding Warden published in 2023.
