The following line in the article linked to made me think it worth bringing to people's attention: “The landscape mops up the water – it’s a blotting paper effect and assures nothing like the Somerset Levels disaster happens”. I feel there are various points in the article worth serious consideration, e.g. farming systems, landscape-scale effects and properly functioning communities.

We have always been aware of the Calder and were not complacent. We have never been flooded before. 3 years ago the river came onto the back garden but was well short of our bungalow. On Boxing Day 2015 we had an Environment Agency warning at 4:30 am. We went to the bottom of the back garden to assess the situation. The Calder flows about 8 or 9 feet below the edge of our rear garden. At this time it was about 3 feet below the rim.
