The Carlisle Floods
A photographic record
On Saturday 8th January 2005 the citizens of Carlisle woke up to the worst flooding seen in the city for almost 200 years. The weather had been exceptionally wet and windy for several days, but no one could have foreseen the extent of the flooding that occurred on that Saturday morning. In a very short space of time the city ground to a halt and by lunchtime the whole city had lost electrical power.
This book was compiled just two days after the event. The photographs in this book were taken by the author as he walked from one end of the city to the other to assess the situation.
