WATER is continuing to rise in the village.
Hill End Road closed over the weekend after water filled the road and remained shut until Tuesday.
Nearby parks and children’s play grounds are under at least two inches of water.
The village green has turned into a lake with seagulls bobbing on top of it.
The Coy Carp pub garden looks more like a swimming pool and with just the top half of the picnic benches peeping out of the water it is hard to imagine a sunny day suitable for anyone to sit on them.
The canal has risen to cover the towpath by Coppermill Lock and the lock gates are overflowing with gallons of water.
The tennis courts and garden at Blackjacks Mill bed and breakfast are under more than a foot of water.
At the Harefield Tenants and Residents Association meeting on Monday night it was agreed that a letter would be written to the council requesting something is done to stop this happening again.
Villagers say they have not seen the water this high for more than 40 years.
