Below is the lastest alert from the Environment Agency. However, residents should be aware that Stockbridge's flood relief is managed by the Hougton Fishing Club which manage the river 7 days a week 366 days a year. They are available to open the sluicegates and spillways, which have been upgraded by the Environment Agency since the last major flooding. The spillways are designed to  relieve the amount of water flowing in the Test and going through Stockbridge. River Keepers at the Houghton Fishing Club are aware of the recent flood warnings but not are not unduly concerned because there are a number of defence measures that are still available to be used. 

The latest information form the Environment Agency has the mid Test are on flood alert. Water levels in Stockbridge are high but are now slowly falling.  Currently, out of bank flooding will be affecting land and fields at Stockbridge, Broughton, Brook and Timsbury, although impacts would have improved slightly over the last few days. Today (24/02/2020) up to 15mm of rain is forecast. This could see an increase in river levels, with minor flood impacts continuing. Tuesday (25/02/2020) and Wednesday (26/02/2020) should see fairly small amounts of rain. On Thursday (27/02/2020) and Friday (28/02/2020) heavier rain is forecast. If the heavier rain does affect the area, then levels will rise, causing deeper out of bank flooding. Please remain prepared for impacts this week. The Environment Agncy will continue to monitor the forecast. This Flood Alert will be updated by 12:00 on Tuesday 25/02/2020.
