Recently I was able to copy a friend’s newspaper cuttings from the time of the Wickford flood. I think these cuttings should be shared with others.
This photograph had the caption ” ONE WAY TO BEAT THE FLOODS”
The comment below the photograph read: –
“A girl finds a way to negotiate the floodwaters in Wickford, Essex. Water in part of the town was eight feet deep and for the second time in three weeks people had to leave their homes.”
The photograph appears to have been taken in London Road not far from Halls Corner. I do not have a date for the cutting.
