FLOOD! Free Exhibition brings back memories
To mark the 70th anniversary of the great flood of 1947 we have revived this major exhibition, which is full of photographs of floods from 1947 to 2003. You can also watch historic Pathe newsreel of the army helping rescue victims of the 1947 flood, when the Thames was out of its banks for 2 weeks and the flood waters stretched from Chapel Arches to the Taplow railway arch east of the Dumb Bell. Nowadays towns and villages between Boulters Lock and Romney Lock downstream of Windsor are protected by the Jubilee River, which was completed in 2001. So we are displaying information about the Jubilee River, including a copy of the original planning application document which makes interesting reading. If you have any memories or photos of flooding in Maidenhead, please do contact us. We would love to talk to you. Exhibition runs from February 1st to April 29th.
