“Flooding of property, roads and farmland is expected to continue today (03/03/21), especially properties closest to the river from All Saints Church, Bisham to Little Marlow.”

Residents are hoping that the rise in water levels doesn’t see the town have flooding as they have had in previous years.

One person said: “Hopefully it doesn’t rise any more, we have had some really bad flooding in the past.

“It doesn’t seem too bad this year at the moment but it could get worst if there’s more rain.”
