I live in Didcot (I know :rolleyes. Just interested in its chances of flooding. I have no idea of its height in relation to surrounding countryside / rivers etc.How can I find out? (for free, on the web!)
When you stand in your lounge, are your feet wet?

You would of course have to wait until it rained a great deal first!
Not if you left the hose pipe on. der
Some info here www.environment-agency.gov.uk/subjects/flood/?lang=_eEnter postcode for flood risk map etc.
So lets get this right....The way you would check to see if your house was on a flood plain would be to turn the hose on and to see if you got wet feet while standing in your lounge.Sound advice!
....it's never risen more than a foot in it's life. ....
just clicked that link and it shows my area as being at risk of severe flooding from rain or sea without sea defences.......well duh isn't most of the UK at risk of being flooded if the sea rises enoughoddly enough though considering that i do live in the middle of the fens which is flatter than a flat thing we suffered no flooding what so ever earlier in the year when the freak storms came.............how strange

You'll be a fucking hero and some sort of tree-hugging yoghurt-weaving organisation is bound to reward you with free sandals and worry-beads for the rest of your low-impact environmentally friendly life.
I'd be more worried about the AWE site than the floods!
