Boxing Day Floods

The Boxing Day flood of 2015 was an extreme event but it could happen again at any time.  In the 4Becks project we are trying to find out as much as we can about that memorable event by asking residents to fill in a flood questionnaire (https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/4BecksFloodingSurvey) and sending in pictures.  We’ve had an excellent response so far and are hoping for more.  If you have any memory or experience of the Boxing Day flood or indeed a previous flood in the village, please fill in the questionnaire.  Here are a few pictures of Town Beck in the Garth, 26th December 2015 courtesy of Richard Mulligan and Helen Brooks.
