Flooding in Bar Hill
On Friday 8th August 2014 the village experienced the heaviest fall of rain for the last 40 years. A significant area of the village was flooded and even Tesco's Superstore was forced to close. Cars were trapped, the A14 impassable for a short while, houses flooded. Here are some links to videos of the event:-

The Parish Council is looking to see what, if anything, could mitigate the effects of this sort of event.
Bar Hill Wetland Project
For over a year now there has been work to implement a project to improve the Nature Reserve. The aim is to retain more water in the balancing lake in times of heavy rainfall whilst maintaining the environment. The project is well advanced and the Parish Council is investigating the funding of this project. To provide more information about about this project I plan to create a page of information and I plan to keep a blog of pictures once the project is underway (hopefully later this year). To read the plan for this work look at
