The Hillfarrance Brook and Village Stream, both tributaries of the River Tone, have caused misery and disruption to villagers over many years. Serious flooding has affected homes in 1984, 1985, 1999 and twice during the winter of 2000 when the Brook and Village Stream overtopped their banks. In October and December 2000 more than 30 homes were flooded internally and the village was cut off by floodwater.
