Is your home at risk? Map shows Lincolnshire flood hotspots

This story is over

Ever worry about what would happen to your home if the area began to flood? Do you at least know how at risk your area is of that happening?

The Environment Agency has attempted to help residents out by producing a colour coded interactive map revealing which areas are most at risk of flooding.

The maps below show the flooding hot (and not) spots across the Greater Lincolnshire region.


Lincoln

Lincoln seems to have varied levels of risk across the city, with some areas in North Hykeham and Saxilby being likely to flood.


Grimsby/Cleethorpes

Many areas of Grimsby are low risk, however there are places in Cleethorpes at high risk of flooding.


Scunthorpe

Majority of Scunthorpe areas are free from flood risks. However, the west side of the town and areas close to the River Trent are more likely to be at risk.


Boston

Boston has a high risk of flooding across the town as the map clearly demonstrates.


Grantham

Grantham only seems to have one single strip of an area that is at risk of flooding close to the River Witham.


Spalding

Similarly to Boston, Spalding is at a high risk of flooding.


Skegness

Being on the coast, Skegness is largely at risk of flooding, with high risk being on the edge of the town.


Gainsborough

Large parts of Gainsborough are not at risk of flooding. However, areas next to the River Trent are at a higher risk.


Louth

Areas around the River Lud are at risk of flooding in Louth.


Horncastle

Homes near Lincoln Road in Horncastle are at risk of flooding.


Sleaford

There is a risk of flooding through Sleaford, around the banks of the River Slea.


Stamford

Finally, a strip of Stamford is at high risk of flooding close to the River Welland. However, the majority of the homes in the area appear to be relatively safe.
