After the flash floods of Wednesday when rain caused havoc in the local area, members of TWiG popped down to the Flacca Wetland to see if the Environment Agency's newly installed flood prevention works were holding up to the deluge of rain that has fallen in Tattenhall during the last 48 hours.

Well it seems that the answer to that is a resounding 'YES'.

The reedbeds, ponds and newly landscaped scrapes had filled with water and the man-made dams were certainly slowing the flow of the Mill Brook, thereby relieving the pressure of water in the centre of the village.

Have a look at the images and see for yourself.
