The River Stour from Sudbury to Stratford St Mary and Dedham

Flood alert

This message has been issued because some minor flooding to low-lying land, roads and riverside areas is likely throughout today, and into this evening, Monday 18th January. River levels are remaining high as the water moves through the system in response to the recent rainfall. River levels will respond to the further rainfall expected. Areas most affected are Sky Hall Hill Road, Wick Road and Lower Farm Road around Boxted Mill. We are not currently expecting the situation to escalate. The forecast is for a dry day for most of Monday, but persistent rainfall will arrive Monday evening and throughout the night and into Tuesday morning. Take care on riverside footpaths, and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger. We are closely monitoring the situation and will update this message as necessary, and no later than 6pm on Monday 18th January.
