Major Floods of Cookham

Cookham Flood of 1894.
This photo was taken just outside East Flint looking towards The Moor.

Cookham Flood of 1947.
This aerial photo is one of many at that time of the extent of flooding in the Thames Valley. I wish to thank once again all those of you who have contributed photos to help build the past history of the village.
I have also put together a three minute You Tube to let you know the weather pattern that lead up to these two major floods, and if repeated could lead up to the same thing happening again.
