Many thanks to the folks at the Pattys Farmhouse for facilitating this camera's location and to Worcestershire County Council  for capitally funding its installation. Brook Lane at its junction with Main Street floods frequently when the River Avon is in spate. Please click here for flooding information regarding this location. Cropthorne is featured in the Domesday Book, and St Michael's Church dates back to the 12th century. The church is a Grade I listed building. The village has many unique examples of timber-framed thatched cottages from the 16th and 17th centuries, and about half the village is designated as a Conservation area. The village has a Site of Special Scientific Interest, Cropthorne New Inn Section. In 2007 Cropthorne and the surrounding area were severely flooded. The B4084 road linking the towns of Evesham and Pershore collapsed and caused major hold-ups throughout the county of Worcestershire. The collapsed road was later called Cropthorne Canyon; the repairs took four months to be repaired at a cost of around £1 million.
