River Wye in Derbyshire

Flood alert

River levels are forecast to rise at the Ashford river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall forecast tonight (Wednesday 27/01/2021) into Friday morning (29/01/2021). Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is possible from mid-morning tomorrow (Thursday 28/01/2021). Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads including Ashford and Bakewell areas. Flooding of properties is not forecast at this point. We expect river levels to remain high until Saturday morning (30/01/2021). We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are patrolling watercourses in the area. Please avoid using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated tomorrow afternoon, 28/01/2021, or as the situation changes.
