Flood level gauges New Mills Yard. 27th August 1961 > 2012
Recording Norwich Flood levels 1570-1912. Boy’s height 4 feet. The photographer’s younger son, Jonathan, aged 6; he who has uploaded an enormous number of his father’s photos to the triple-dub and shared them, we owe him big time, well I do, as he’s let me use various pics of his for ghosts and is always incredibly helpful.
I did this out of curiosity, mainly to see how much the ground level has been built up over the last 50 years. Answer, quite a bit. I’m also curious as to what happened to the older stone measure.
