The Flood Alleviation Scheme Work 2008
1st February 2009
The spillway is now nearly complete and the bank has been lowered. A small concete barrier has been formed in order to prevent the bank from being washed out in the event of a flood.
The works on the bund are now complete and the access way off the A40 bypass has been removed.
22nd December 2008
Work on the rising shaft is now complete and only the final tidying up phase is required to complete the works at the Homs Road Car Park.
The car park has now been reinstated, the footbridge over the brook rebuilt and the excavation equipment removed.
The new footbridge is slightly further upstream than the original one. This is because of the length of the bank area needed to allow for the exit grill.
The brook referred to as the Chatterley Brook
is actually a unnamed brook that flows from Weston-under-Penyard past Chackley Grove.
It has only recently become referred to as the Chatterley Brook
and locally it was previously known as Chackley Brook
