On 31st January 1953, the east coast of England was devastated by the worst flooding in living memory. A number of extreme weather events combined over an eight hour period to cause major flooding in areas from Yorkshire through to Kent.
In commemoration of these floods, a series of events will take place during the week of 28th January 2013. We'll share information using this Pinterest board.
