Title: A flood defence scheme for Sladesbridge
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
This document is an Environment Agency booklet about the flood defence scheme for Sladesbridge. The village of Sladesbridge in North Cornwall has flooded no fewer than 28 times in the last 50 years, causing much misery and disruption to local residents. The neighbouring hamlet of Clapper and some properties on the edge of Egloshayle have also suffered repeated flooding as a result of the rivers Allen and Camel over topping their banks. This leaflet describes the £1.75 million flood defence scheme built to reduce the risk of flooding - a project that has also created a valuable new wetland and considerably benefited local wildlife.
