Floods Return to Cookham 

(11 December 2000)

Floods have now returned to Cookham with the river Thames bursting its bank on Sunday 10 December yet again. Traffic lights were quickly installed at the Pound and in Cookham Village, as only high vehicles were able to negotiate the flooding across the Moor.  Cookham appeared on the ITV News with a reporter in high waders standing outside the Crown.


The Moor Car Park

The Environment Agency reported at 5.45pm on Monday 11 December 2000, that there was a flood warning at Marlow, Bourne End, Cookham, Maidenhead, Bray, Eton and Windsor. This could affect homes and businesses and they recommend that precautions are taken.  So far Cookham homes have not been hit, but to say this could be tempting fate!! The Environment Agency are warning that the flood levels are still rising and with continual drizzle, this is likely to continue.
