Welcome to the Windermere & Bowness Chamber of Trade page helping those who have suffered damage from the recent flooding.


The recent flooding in Cumbria has caused no end of upheaval and distress to businesses and residents alike.

The cost of repairing a 3 bed house after floods is on average about £30,000 the cost of additional flood proofing could be £15,000. 

For those likely to be in a flood risk area it may be worthwhile considering to reduce any future problems but it is not known if this will help to reduce premiums or help obtain insurance in the future.
