14th Jan 2021 - Flood Alerts

Residents are advised to be aware of Government flood alerts and prepare if possible.

Please check the Met Office website for the latest forecasts and GOV.UK for the latest flood alerts and warnings.

Lewes District Council's website has flooding advice and lists locations where you can pick up sandbags here.


LDC strongly advise residents to take their own steps to protect their property as they cannot guarantee to meet all demands for sandbags. It is the responsibility of property owners to take any necessary action to protect their property.


Sandbag stores are open 24 hours a day (except for Landport, Lewes). The nearest location to Piddinghoe is:

Garage 23, Fullwood Avenue, Newhaven.
