MEM21953 - Dulverton Flood Relief Banks (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
In a scheme at Dulverton, finished in 1987, the River Barle is prevented from spilling over onto its flood plain by raised banks.  Since the flood barrier was created, there has still been periodic flooding, although not on the scale of the 1952 flood. The most recent example was in 2001.
