1989 Flood - press coverage

Flooded out
The night the rain came down

Following torrential rain in the late afternoon on 6th July 1989, run-off apparently from AWRE caused the lake at Aldermaston Court, then owned by Blue Circle plc, to overflow resulting in a section of wall in Church Road collapsing.

This released significant quantities of water which flooded houses on the east side of The Street and on both sides at the northern end of The Street near the Hinds Head.

The flood became a media item, with both national and local papers covering it.
