Freshford Mill average rainfall December 2014 Update April 2015

The chart below shows the 20 years Lyneham average rainfall and Freshford rainfall average from 2009 to 2014 (six year period)  I have included average rainfall to 2015, obviously this data is not complete yet. For May 2015 I have only entered so far (5th) 39mm. Far from the average rainfall becoming flattened as more years are added to the data, the trend is portraying higher and lower rainfall. Please note that the graph for 2015 will overlay the 2014 Average as May to December data is zero.

What I do not know is whether the rainfall statistics for Freshford can be compared to Lyneham. I need to contact the Met office for that information.  A complete chart which is updated at the end of each month can be studied at: Freshford Mill rainfall

Housing development at Freshford Mill

Freshford Parish Council's objection to the development at Freshford Mill


Reviewing the parish council's objection to Surrey and Counties planning application back in 2005 I do not see any reason why this housing development should be resurrected. This comment is almost enough in itself to dismiss the present forthcoming application:

1.3 The creation of a new solely residential settlement of the type proposed in this parish can only result in urbanisation of the countryside, an increase in car usage on the very poor local road system, and a further unbalancing of the community. We do not consider any of these results to be desirable in any terms. The only benefit arising from this application which is accepted by this Council would be the improvement in the landscape, but emphatically not at the cost of the arguments against the scheme which are set out in this document.

Freshford Flood December 2013

The worst flood in 2013 happened on Christmas Eve. Freshford Mill was also flooded but I was unable to take photos on site. A careful comparison of other photos taken in 2012 will confirm that the level of flooding is higher in 2013.
