Sowerby Bridge Floods, 3 Years Later

Boxing Day 2015 saw flooding devastate the Calder Valley from Todmorden through to Brighouse, including my home town of Sowerby Bridge. I took a small set of pictures then of the ongoing flooding and with time to pass this morning, I thought I would return to roughly the same area and re picture some of them. They can all be seen here and on Flickr.
