Images from around Station Road and the Fishponds on 20 July 2007 - and a rueful reminder of the Environment Agency map. According to the Environment Agency, the lighter shade of blue shows "extent of extreme flood" - though photos taken in 2007 within the Eastern Bypass suggest a review may be necessary.
The slideshow also covers later scenes on the A40 and Cassington Road; and from Oxford Road to the Tollbridge.
The Environment Agency has also published a Flooding Information Sheet >>
