10 February 2014 Floods. Walton Lane becomes seriously flooded at the Shepperton end but at the Weybridge it is possible to pass. Despite police signs saying road closed ahead because of flood, drivers think they know better and drive on. They go over the hill and find that they have to turn around – often with difficulty. Locals put up barriers to make the message obvious.
St Georges School playing field, which is in the flood plain, goes underwater.
The Thames is broader than it has been for years at D’Oyly Carte green.
13 December 2012. At the quarterly meeting with the police, burghers complained about the lack of enforcement of the 7.5t weight limit in Walton Lane. Some residents said the signage was not good enough – this is Surrey and not a police matter. I have raised the poor signage with Surrey.
