Given the high levels of rainfall in recent weeks, and obvious signs that local fields have reached saturation point, it hardly comes as a surprise that additional rainfall is causing some degree of flooding in the Vale of Aylesbury.
Haddenham residents will need to take particular care on Lower Road to the Bugle Horn, for example, where standing water up to axle level of vehicles was present on Friday morning, 7th February. There is also serious flooding on the small rural road from the little hump back bridge on Stanbridge Road, past Aston Sandford, to Longwick. On Friday afternoon, 7th February, this was impassable to standard sized family vehicles.
