Isolated at Sleights

Isolated at Sleights

A Yorkshire Post image of the River Esk in flood at Sleights. On 23rd July 1930 severe flooding affected Sleights following a cloud burst. Many villagers were marooned in their homes, surrounded by water as our postcard picture shows. These floods, the worst since the 1800’s affected the whole of the Esk valley. Obviously the Yorkshire Post had a photographer available at the right moment. Pity this poor householder!
