Teddington hit by floods

NewsOn Friday 20th July 2007 heavy rain was predicted but no-one could have prepared enough for the drenching that was to follow.

June had already deluged the UK with twice the average rainfall and but nothing could prepare us for the months-worth of rain that parts of the UK received in just 24 hours. It was end-of-the-world weather that probably didn’t last more than half an hour but even after 5 minutes you could already see the drains being over-run with deep water.

Particularly hard hit were buildings either side of the bridge that separates each half of Teddington – the additional water flowing down each side of the bridge added to the already over-capacity drains and some particular business were suddenly and acutely aware of how The Causeway probably got it’s name.
