When the River Lea was a mile wide

Postby Scott Whitehead » 2014 Feb 11, 11:09

I thought some of you may be interested in my latest blog on the flood of January 1809 in my local area. It is interesting that this winter has been far wetter than that season 205 years ago. Rather than bashing the Environment Agency I think it is important that people realise just how much their forerunners have done in preventing what was a common problem for many communities across the UK in years gone by.
