Flooding

Postby nettshubby » Tue Mar 27, 2012 9:32 pm

Hi, we are in process of buying a house in Old Church Warsop, on Barn Owl close. As part of the searches we have recieved a report on susceptibility to flooding there.

The report says that danger from flooding from the river is neglible, but risk is high from surface water and "ground" water, whatever that is!

Afew years ago there was general catastrophic flooding generaly, I particularly remember Renishaw by the golf course being under water.

does anyone, particularly on Barn Owl close, or immediate vicinity, have any information about whether any flooding has occured, and whether it affected proprty?

In June 2007 the river Meden flooded at the main A60 road bridge by the Mill, for the first time in my memory and I've been here since the mid fifties. The only place it does flood ocassionally down that area is by the house near Green's farm and when the river is at flood level it does go into lower levels of the garden, but that happens rarely. I've never known it to flood anywhere on the Barn Owl Close side of the Burns Green Bridge.

On the last occasion that Green's farm cottage flooded there was a lot of standing water in the woodland on the Barn Owl Close side of the bridge Caz.
I assume this is the high risk from surface/ground water mentioned in the report Ray received.
I don't know how close it came to the properties on Barn Owl Close.

I suspect that would have been in the great flood of June 2007.
