Sockbridge Mill

Sockbridge Mill was flooded out in the Dec 2015 floods, with about 1m of water  throughout the listed properties. We are filling in old man-made ponds that were constructed when there was a fish farm there in the 1980’s, and re-profiling the existing land to form a bund up to 1.8 metres high.

This will not only directly protect the properties from future flooding with the bund, but also create a low lying area for the river water pass over easier by helping to increase the capacity of the river in the Sockbridge Mill area.
