Photographs of the 1958 Wickford Flood.

Personal photographs of John Potton's family.

John Potton, one of Wickford’s long time residents, came to the Archive and brought these personal photographs of theĀ  flood around his home on Runwell Road. These show the flood level on the morning after the heavy rain, lower than the level of the previous evening.
