Despite weeks of heavy rain that inundated the surrounding areas, the town of Pickering in North Yorkshire stayed safe from the floods simply by working with rather than against nature.
Pickering flooded in 2007 but couldn't get funding for a flood barrier. Instead a smaller, and cheaper reservoir to store water and let it out slowly was built further up Pickering beck.
In addition, 167 small, leaky dams were built out of logs and branches and trees were planted.

The chairman of the Environment Agency has told MPs that he wished he had ended his Christmas holiday in Barbados sooner to fly back and deal with the floods.
But Sir Philip Dilley denied he felt guilty, despite not returning until four days after the Boxing Day deluge.
He and other executives were questioned on Wednesday about the agency's handling of the crisis.
