|Flooded rugby pitches at Sparrow's Den, at the bottom of Corkscrew Hill, West Wickham. 24 February 2014.|
These rugby pitches were flooded a few years ago, apparently because an underground watercourse became clogged or blocked. So perhaps the same thing has happened again; or maybe it's just a very high water table.
Some houses and gardens were also affected, and for a week or more a relay of fire engines were pumping water down the road.
