Corbridge new enhanced flood defences now nearly complete

10 years ago Corbridge flooded in a terrible way completely overwhelming the defences that protected The Stanners and Station Road. The damage was massive and the second set of flood defences to protect the area is now pretty much completed. 

The work was part funded by the government and a local levy, which is paid for through a small charge on council tax bills. Full story here:http://www.thejournal.co.uk/north-east-analysis/analysis-news/400k-scheme-reduce-risk-flooding-8412683
