    Hi all,

    Unusual request. Got an A level geography coursework project and ive decided to do it on flood risk over time. Anyone know good websites / charts showing flood risk (partically in southern england) say from 30 years ago even longer ago would be better? I know its a big ask, but if not is there any alternatives i could use to basically prove my hypothesis that the amount of floods are increasing over time. Cheers.

     

    Regards, Ollie.

    Formal flood maps were first produced by the Environment agancy in 2013 and updated in 2019. For earlier maps you might need to go to drainage boards or water companies. Otherwise its searching flood events rather than risk maps.

    Hope this is helpful
