Historic Flood Events

Overview
This historic dataset from Environment Agency details all the flood events recorded from 1947 amounting to over 21,000 records. Some records go back as far as the 18th Century and these are also included where available.

This data is useful in flood risk assessments to identify past flood events as a good indicator of future flooding behaviour where defences have not been subsequently installed.
