Fantastic images.

Looks like these floods are nearly as bad as those in 1947. About a dozen images of these floods are available free on the "Britain from Above" website: http://www.britainfr
omabove.org.uk/

These old images are mainly shot from the North so bit difficult to compare, but flooding alongside what is now the A34 looks similar to the 2014 floods.
(If you register on the Britain from Above website then you can zoom in and see a lot more detail).

Could be two possibilities for two similar floods 67 years apart: global warming doesn't really exist or all that post war promiscuity had the same effect in invoking Gods wrath as was recently suggested by a certain Henley councillor!
