The Brentford Flood of January 1841

B&CLHS Editor, Val Bott, will present an illustrated talk marking the 180th anniversary of this disaster which took place on the night of 16/17 January 1841. She will describe how the Brentford community came together to cope with the damage and destruction, the need to help those made homeless and to organise the removal of wrecks to make possible the re-opening of the waterway. Val’s book Flood! won the LAMAS Local History Publications Award in 2003.
