 The Northwich Flood in 1946 - prize winning memories of local people. 8 pages, 9 illustrations.

The flood waters which hit Northwich on the 8th of February 1946 were caused by a freak combination of weather conditions. The effect was devastating particularly because the centre of the town was much more densely populated then. This booklet contains shocking photos and evocative accounts by two eyewitnesses bringing the events vividly to life.
