The rain just kept on coming and Facebook and other platforms have been full of information regarding road closures, raised manhole covers, full culverts, blocked gutters and saturated ground.

And then it SNOWED!

Tattenhall has clearly not escaped.

There is flooding at Old Mill Place and in Millfield (in just minutes) and roads are now completely under water.

The volume of rain has been immense and we ask everyone to exercise extreme caution when out and about in and around the village.

That said, some of the images that have been captured in the centre of the village are remarkable.

As usual, the community spirit within the village has been amazing. The Barbour Institute opened its doors to around 30 evacuees and teachers were stranded at the school. Alison's Country Kitchen, Tattenhall Spar and Tattenhall Spice providing drinks, food etc. Residents offered their help, pumps to help remove the water, beds for the night, food and were to be seen wading down the High Street with blankets, pillows etc. The Pheasant offered rooms for the night. Farmers tractors, local garages, 4x4 s pulling cars free of the floods, the list goes on. Thank you to all involved.

Please remain alert with the volume of debris that is around currently.

Please remember that the peak flow will be some hours after the rainfall stops as water continues to run into the Mill Brook from its catchment on the Sandstone Ridge.

Stay safe everyone.
