River Trent at Sawley Marina, including Sawley Lock

Flood Warning

River levels are rising at the Shardlow + Church Wilne river gauge as a result of persistent heavy rainfall. Consequently, the risk of flooding remains. Areas most at risk are Sawley Marina including Sawley Lock, and the B6540 Tamworth Road at Sawley. Further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We expect river levels to remain high until tomorrow evening 25/02/20. 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 tomorrow morning, 25/02/20, or as the situation changes.
