St Lawrence’s Church in Appleby was seriously flooded during Storm Desmond in December 2015, along with a lot of the town. After the cleanup, it was decided to use Floodgates to protect the Church against future flooding.

Rector Sarah Lunn and Church Conservation Advisor Lily Hopkins are featured, receiving and installing their Floodgates, in a Channel 4 documentary series called The Yorkshire Dales and the Lakes. You can watch it here – the segment about the Floodgates starts at around 35 minutes into the program.
