Bring on the wall! Armitage Bridge Flood Barrier completed.

The Armitage Bridge flood wall is in place. When surges of water come down the brook at times of high rainfall the flood waters will be diverted into an adjacent field protecting residents homes. This is a truly community led project which will protect houses down Dean Brook Road from further flooding. Designed by local resident John Lockwood, supported with funding from local architects One 17 AD and also from Armitage Bridge householders and from the Huddersfield Area Committee. This project has 'local solution' written all over it and is evidence if it were needed of the great community spirit that exists within the village.
