Lower Derwent in Derbyshire

Flood Alert

River levels remain high at the Matlock and Church Wilne river gauges as a result of persistent rainfall. Consequently, the risk of flooding remains. Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads including Darley Dale, Cromford, Matlock, Whatstandwell, Belper, Duffield, Milford, Little Eaton, the B5057 between Darley Bridge and Two Dales Road, Church Wilne, Draycott, and Wilne Lane between Draycott and Sawley, farmland in Elvaston and Haslams Lane at Derby. Further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We expect river levels to remain high until tomorrow 26/02/20. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and see the GOV.UK website for a 5 day flood forecast. This message will be updated this afternoon, 25/02/20, or as the situation changes.
