Kersal and Broughton
|Knee-deep in Broughton Floods, 1946
"Eventually the river slunk back into its lair leaving behind a thick coat of odorous slime, an army of black beetles and a regiment of rampaging rats. I realise now that, for my parents, the flood must have been devastating, but I was a child and it was a great adventure." [Mrs Patricia Brock, Irlam]
