River Derwent close to flooding in Blackhall Mill

It was a lucky escape for the village of Blackhall Mill on the weekend of 6-7th September. The River Derwent came close to bursting its banks. Some elderly residents were evacuated but the flood defences, installed after floods in 2000, managed to stop the village being flooded.

Councillors Peter Maughan and Jonathan Wallace visited the village on Saturday to see the state of the river first hand.
