Brampton Weather - Climatological Weather Station

The Brampton Climatological Weather Station is managed by a member of the local community. Local weather conditions are recorded every day and then submitted to the Met Office. Brampton is only approximately 13 miles west of Haltwhistle and so it is a very useful source of weather information.

Take a look at the website.. there is plenty current and historical data available to view as well as a webcam.

Environment Agency River Levels - South Tyne at Haltwhistle

The Environment Agency monitors river levels at Haltwhistle on the South Tyne immediately downstream of the railway station and Haltwhistle Tyne Bridge. The data is telemetered which means you can view them almost real time on the interent. To view the levels follow this link:

RRC_May2014_poster PDF 1,583Kb

This is a poster which summarises the Haltwhistle Burn 'total catchment approach' managed by Tyne Rivers Trust. It also shows where the PhD fits into the wider project with progress to date (May 2014) on the 'community monitoring and modelling' process. This poster was also presented during the 2014 annual River Restoration Centre conference.

 

Belford Proactive Interventions

Visit 'Proactive Interventions' to find out more about the research carried out in Belford by Newcastle University. An alternative catchment approach was adopted in order to reduce flood risk and other catchment issues, similar to what is planned for Haltwhistle.

The Eden DTC

The River Eden Demonstration Test Catchment (DTC) is a Defra funded project which is looking at ways to effectively manage diffuse pollution arising from agricultural activities. This project monitors stream water quality and biology to see how it responds during flood events. There are a number of project partners, including Newcastle University and the Eden Rivers Trust.

 

National Flood Forum

The National Flood Forum is a national charity 'dedicated to supporting and representing communities and individuals at risk of flooding': http://www.nationalfloodforum.org.uk/  

 

'MorpethFlood' and 'ToonFlood'

Morpeth and Newcastle (north east England) have suffered from a number of flash flood events over the past few years. For example, Morpeth was hit hard during the 6-7 September 2008 floods and Newcastle on 28 June 2012. Newcastle University has worked closely with the communities affected to gather information about these events (e.g. photos, videos and accounts). This information is extremely valuable to engineers as it can be used to reconstruct what happened, map flood outlines and calculate flood levels. By using the local community to share their flood information, an extensive amount of information can be obtained. Click here to find out more.
