Flooding is possible - be prepared

Flood alert for River Cherwell from Lower Heyford down to and including Oxford

Property flooding is not currently expected. River levels are high on the middle to lower part of the River Cherwell as a result of persistent rainfall last week. Further flooding of roads and farmland is not expected, however water will remain out of banks especially in the areas around Thrupp. There is no rain forecast for today, Tuesday. We expect river levels to remain high for the next couple of days. We are monitoring the situation. Please refer to the 'River and Sea levels in England' webpage for current river levels and avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses. This message will be updated on Wednesday, or as the situation changes.
