Emsworth weather - storms, tides, floods and winds

For opening times see Visit Us

Weather is one of the subjects that we all like to comment about and Emsworth Museum’s Photograph Archivist, Bernie Gudge, has searched the museum archive and his own personal albums to find extremes of weather experienced in Emsworth and the surrounding area since 1895.

This exhibition of black and white images showing the affect of storms, tides, floods and winds includes pictures of ice-flows 6” thick at Langstone Mill, floods on the bridge at Hermitage, the bitter winter of 1963 as well as the disastrous storm in 1987. Happier pictures show residents skating on the mill pond, children playing in the snow in 1947 and in the summer swimming in the warm sea.
