Boxing Day 2015 was a day that will be remembered by many. This was the day that floods devastated the Calder Valley destroying homes, businesses, schools and personal belongings. The bad news kept coming and the day after York, Greater Manchester, and Leeds were all under water.
There is some good news though, and this is it. Flooding is part of our wet and rainy history, and due to a fantastic community spirit we have always pulled through and come back better, stronger, and drier than ever before.
We have gathered together some flood photos from the so called ‘good old days’, mostly from our nostalgia books which show us just how bad the floods used to be.
And that’s enough flooding for one blog. That’s enough flooding for one year, for one decade, for one century! Hope you enjoyed seeing some photographs of floods in the good old days…
