What makes me wonder is the mentality of people who buy houses in low lying, often flood plain areas, and ignore the long standing name of the locality.

For example, Marshfield, it was not names so for no reason.

Get the camera, take plenty of pictures and in ten years time remind the council planning dept' and developers of how these areas can flood before they build more houses on these fields causing future generations more grief.
