An online guide to every UK ford, watersplash and tidal road
A county by county guide of splash-down river and low water crossings throughout the UK. Please take particular care when crossing all fords and floodwater (some tips and advice are available here). wetroads is simply a record of UK fords at the turn of the millenium and the inclusion of a ford in this guide does not guarantee that the ford is a public right of way or is safe to cross.
If you enjoy taking part in adventurous driving activities like driving off-road, or racing, it's very important you make sure you are covered by your car insurance policy - you may be required to purchase additional cover for more extreme activities. For public hire vehicles, contact DNA Taxi Insurance for a competitive quote online. Also, read our guidelines for crossing fords and make sure your vehicle is well maintained.
