I know we all have enough to worry about but with the recent storms I have been wondering if I should move from SE1 to higher ground? I live just off Southwark Park Road and just wonder at what sea-level rise do we start to become at risk? I believe that the Thames at Tower Bridge is 30 feet above sea leve but not sure how that works with tides etc. and also whether the Barrier protects us and for how much longer....

I know Bermondsey was an island but I always assumed that the former Abbey would have hogged the high ground - so only Kino will be safe!

I had completely forgotten about my previous post - well it was 6 years ago....
thanks for the reminder!
