RIVERS AND FLOODING

There are two main rivers running through the parish which are the River Lugg and the River Arrow. The Lugg is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) so is protected under government legislation. The document from Natural England here outlines its characteristics, flora and fauna and reasons for its SSSI designation.

The current river levels are shown in the automatic gauges data below which are updated every 15 minutes. The Byton automatic gauge is for the Lugg north of Kingsland and the Eardisland gauge is on the Arrow. Click on the gauge names to get more information about them.
