New updated Flood Warning Service

The Environment Agency has made improvements to Flood Warning Service that covers Nether Heyford.

Previously the village was covered by a Flood Warning Area called Isolated properties and villages near the Upper River Nene and its tributaries. This covered quite a large area including properties in Nether Heyford, Flore, Upper Heyford, Upton and Hackleton. This Flood Warning Area has now been split into into three. Two of these are within the village:

Bugbrooke and Nether Heyford including areas near the upper River Nene

Isolated properties and mills near the Upper River Nene including Heyford Mill

Both Flood Warnings will be issued based on the rain forecast, and also river level gauges at Dodford and Flore Hill. These river levels can be seen online. For the first time, the rain gauge at Litchborough will also inform the decision. This all means that any Flood Warnings issued in the future will be much more meaningful for the community and not influenced by what may be happening elsewhere.
