Blackburn Mill

The River Roddlesworth runs through the site of a former paper mill in Feniscowles, Blackburn, which has been earmarked for mixed use development including residential and commercial areas. The site is in Flood Zone 3 and has previously flooded due to the surcharging of the culverted watercourse running under the former mill.

Edenvale Young were commissioned to undertake modelling to assist with a flood risk assessment, and to investigate potential options to mitigate flood risk from the River Roddlesworth and two reservoirs near the site.
