Wettest Winter on Record

The winter of 2013/14 was officially the wettest on record.

Situated on a hill, Chicheley was spared the terrible flooding experienced by many parts of the country.

Nevertheless, the fields were saturated, streams overflowed and some roads had shallow floods.  The farming routine was disrupted, and the footpaths around the village became almost impassible for hikers, joggers, riders and dog walkers.
