The historic town of Langport, on the banks of the River Parrett, claims to be the smallest town in England. Langport and all the villages around are part of the Somerset Levels, where in 2014, flooding had a catastrophic effect on farming in the area, with the worst flooding since 1929. Most of the blame was laid at the door of the Environment Agency for failing to dredge the River Parrett and the Parrett Relief Channel, both of which were said to be silted up to below 60% of their capacity to clear the flood waters from the Levels. As always, famers carry on farming against all the odds, and local herds are still maintaining their numbers.
