Flooding

1998

Heavy rain over Easter in 1998 affected a large swathe of the country (have a look at the Met Office report ). Potterspury suffered the worst floods for a decade and Geoff Lucas recorded them in these photos.

2007

In 2007 heavy rain again dampened the village (and the rest of the country according to the Met Office). Despite the construction of a balancing pond when the houses at Oak View were constructed in 2005, the brook burst its banks again.
