River Trent, Trentside
A view of the floods on the River Trent, taken from the Nottingham side of the River, looking towards where County Hall stands today. Trent Bridge is in the distance. Exceptionally cold weather swept from Russia that year bringing snow and frost. As the snows melted, the River Trent burst its banks at Wilford and West Bridgford. The flood waters reached as far as Nottingham train station, and reached a record height of 79ft and 4 inches on the 19th of February. Houses in Wilford had water up to second floor bedrooms.
