Hundred Foot Washes in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk

Flood Alert

River levels have risen at the Welney and Sutton Gault Causeway river gauges as a result of persistent rainfall. Consequently, flooding of low lying roads and land is expected. We expect flooding to affect Hundred Foot Washes, also known as the Ouse Washes, including the causeways at Sutton Gault and Welney. This information is correct as of 15:15 on Friday, 16/11/19. The causeway at Sutton Gault has approximately 30 centimetres of water on the road. The causeway at Welney has approximately 26 centimetres of water on the road. Due to the uneven surface of the roads, water may be deeper in places. No further rainfall is expected today. We expect river levels to remain high. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 17/11/19 or as the situation changes.

This information last updated 3:20pm, Friday 15th November.
