Floodplain resident’s collection of flood and bore tide videos – out on Vimeo now!   Leave a comment

A resident of Alney Island, the river island between two channels of the River Severn at Gloucester, has been filming the water in his neighbourhood for over a decade. In his extensive collection, there are many videos of floods and bore tides, which he illustrates with insightful comments.

Have a look at some of his videos on the River Severn Floods and Tides Vimeo channel.

In this particular video, the author points to some features in photographs from the 1947 floods in Gloucester to argue for a better understanding of flooding in the area, and for taking into account historical changes in the floodplain.
