Lower River Nidd

Flood alert

The flood alert for the lower River Nidd remains in force. River levels in the lower catchment are rising as a result of rapid snow melt. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible. Areas most at risk are land around the Lower River Nidd and its tributaries including Sand Beck, Sike Beck, Pool Beck and Great Gutter. River levels in the upper catchment have peaked. Please be aware that further rain is forecast from Tuesday 19th January. We are closely monitoring the situation and our incident response staff are checking defences. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses. This message will be updated in 8 hours, or as the situation changes.
