Whisstock’s Place Flood Gate Demonstration

Many thanks to Kate (Clerk to the Town Clerk) at Woodbridge Town Council and the team at Suffolk Norse (operators of the barrier) for arranging this demonstration of the flood gate that protects Whisstock’s Place in Woodbridge, near the Tide Mill.

Whilst the video takes a few seconds, the closure of the barrier takes about 15-20mins in total, and can be accomplished well in advance of any flood surges that would need the barrier to be closed.
