Flood protection wall at St Helen’s Mill

June 15, 2017

Flood protection wall
Work on the flood alleviation scheme at St Helen’s Mill in Abingdon has begun. A low wall alongside the River Ock is being built to protect the ground floor flats. The work is partly paid for by the district council, and organised by the Environment Agency.
Flood protection wall
Water from the River Ock has reached as far as St Helen’s Mill on a number of occasions, and in 2007 the floods surrounded the building. Since then the little bridge has been removed as it was thought to impede the flow, and St Helen’s Mill was tanked a few feet under the ground and about a meter above.
