Freshford Mill flood 2012
Freshford Mill flooded 25th November 2012
It has been four years since Freshford Mill has been flooded. Since that time work has been carried out and buildings have been developed in the flood plain. The photographs below show that the work has been a waste of time. Although Freshford had 149mm of rain in November 2012 the greatest since 2008 this amount of rainfall is not remarkable, some parts of the country have received that amount of rainfall overnight. This flood is still considerably less than the flood that must happen when the tide at Avonmouth is at its highest and there is a heavy rainfall on waterlogged land.
