River Rother and its tributaries from Turks Bridge to the Royal Military Canal

Flood Alert

River levels are rising as a result of persistent heavy rainfall overnight. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible on Thursday morning 14/11/2019. We believe there is a possibility of flooding of low-lying land and roads close to the river, particularly in the Crowhurst Bridge area and around Shrub Lane, and of low-lying land and roads along the River Rother, particularly around Robertsbridge. We expect river levels to continue to rise, with further rainfall predicted during the morning and into the afternoon on Thursday 14/11/2019. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are checking our defences and structures. Please avoid using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated by 4pm today, 14/11/2019.

This information last updated 8:11am, Thursday 14th November.
