Lowdham is a village situated on the Cocker Beck and currently has 200 homes at very significant risk of flooding.

A successful application to the Natural Flood Management Fund awarded £50,000 to the Trent Rivers Trust to work with partners and use natural processes to reduce flood risk.

The Cocker Beck catchment upstream of Lowdham flows through a relatively steep sided valley which results in a typically fast catchment response to storm events. Natural Flood Management work in the upper catchment will help to slow flows through the implementation of measures such as leaky dams to slow down flows and capture sediments.
