Our thoughts go out to all those affected by flooding across the North, and we would like to thank the emergency services and army troops who have worked tirelessly to ensure that everyone is safe.
Thankfully our area has not suffered. Stockport has the benefit of being on relatively high ground. In the town itself the river runs quite deep and there’s no housing along the banks nearby.
We walked along the Mersey to check on the 27th – it’s high and fast-flowing but nowhere near bursting the banks.
The Environment Agency identifies small areas of flood risk in our area – some housing near the Mersey and others near Micker Brook.12 Comments
