Upper Derwent in Derbyshire

Flood alert

River levels are rising at the Chatsworth river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is expected to continue. Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads including Bamford, Leadmill, Curbar, Grindleford, and Rowsley. Further heavy rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We expect river levels to remain for the next few days. We are closely monitoring the situation. Please plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and avoid using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses. This message will be updated tomorrow evening, 21/01/21 or as the situation changes.
