Flooding & Angarrack Stream

As quoted on Wikipedia
Angarrack is situated in a narrow valley from which the Angarrack River flows before joining the Hayle River at Loggans in a specially constructed culvert which prevents the valley flooding. However, in January 2003 the flooding was severe enough to be reported on the regional television programme Spotlight
