On December 5th much of the UK’s coast was battered by the worst tidal surge and floods since 1953.
This set of images was taken 3 and a half days after the event. This should give some sort of idea as some of the damage had already been cleared at this point. My trip took me up the North Norfolk Coast from Cromer up to Brancaster, via Blakeney and Wells. This is just a small number of places that have been hit and received damage.
One thing has struck me since last week. The Norfolk spirit, which I never for one minute thought would not kick in, has actually kicked in above and beyond. Stories are coming out of many places where people are getting together as a community to help each other.
There has never been a more important time to support your local businesses. 100’s if not 1000’s of businesses have been affected so lets make sure we show them our support.
Finally, yesterday I felt I needed to do something to help. Norfolk, and it’s beauty have been kind to me with my photography, so it was time to give something back. I spent a few hours at the National Trust Brancaster premises, doing what I could in the clean up process. The Norfolk Coast NT have had many areas affected http://norfolkcoastnationaltrust.blogspot.co.uk/ Here I am at work
