Flooding in Derbyshire

Find out more about current flooding in the county, road closures, safety advice and current flooding alerts. Please check before travelling and do not drive into flood water or drive on roads that are closed.


We are continuing to work with other agencies to provide practical support and advice for residents and businesses affected by flooding as the clean-up operation gets underway.

Many local businesses have been affected by the flooding so we urge you to support them by 'shopping local'. A number of festive events are due to take place over the coming weeks and while the majority will be going ahead, please check with the event organiser before you set out.

Flood warnings

We urge people to take the following advice when out and about in Derbyshire:

  • don't try to drive through flood water 
  • don't attempt to drive on roads which remain closed
  • don't walk, run or cycle in flooded areas
  • keep your dog on a lead when near to rivers and flood water
  • keep away from the water's edge
