More about this scene

Caption for Coltishall, Lock 1902: This tranquil scene was destroyed in August 1912 when six inches of rain fell in twenty-four hours. The massive force of the great flood swept away the lock gates and undermined the foundations. Thereafter it was not possible for boats to travel higher up the Bure, and all traffic from the Broads now halts at Coltishall.
