Floodstop protects the birthplace of Scouting

Posted on 29th September 2010

Floodstop recently protected a number of properties on Brownsea Island from a significant high tide.

Angela Cott, National Trust Property Manager at Brownsea Island said:

“We are delighted that we now have an easy to deploy flood prevention system on the island. It will allow us to protect our newly refurbished reception when we have exceptionally high tides. We were completely fed up with deploying sandbags in the past. The barrier was in action today and prevented flooding of the walkway and reception. It’s fantastic.”
