Is there a risk of flooding in the Stowe Bridge area please?

The Fen country is well known for being flat and low lying. Does the area flood much? Is the risk known to be more likely in recent years? I like Norfolk and I want to buy a house there and move there, but I have no knowledge of the Fen country at all, having only visited it once. Obviously, I am desperate to get the right info and not make a terrible mistake. Thank you.

  • Part of the conveyancing would involve an environmental search. You can also commission a flood report

  • If you go to the environment agency website you can enter your postcode and it will tell you if you are in a flood risk area. On the map, if the area is coloured blue, click on that and it will tell you what the risk is. If the risk is categorised as significant (greater than 1:75) be careful. The agreement between insurers and the government to automatically cover all property for flood risk irrespective of the risk level ends in June 2013 with no guarantee that a new agreement will be reached. For more information on the implications go to my blog via my website.
