News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

A selection of photos of various floods Some are obviously from 1953 but some are from an earlier time.Locations on the Island are mostly unknown to me though a couple of the earlier ones are.





5 Strode Crescent

6 Winstanley Road




10 I think this taken from the other end of picture one




14 Somewhere in Bluetown?


16 Top left corner of this one shows a windmill

17This one has what I presume is a fire brigade pump in the left bottom corner
