Note. In 2007 Briars Close and some other properties at this end of Pangbourne had some flooding caused by the lack of maintenance to the Sulham brook and the bridge over Sulham Lane. This has now been rectified with extensive works having been carried out. The Environmental Agency has stated that 'the flooding which occurred on 20 July 2007 was caused by an exceptionally severe storm (in excess of 1 in 200 year return period) which followed the wettest summer on record.'
