Cam Flood Photographs: February 2001

Cambridge 2000 flood home page

Cambridge largely avoided flooding in the last few months of 2000, when several other parts of England were badly affected. However the Cam finally flooded on 5 and especially 6 February 2001, after a heavy downpour on 3 and 4 February onto the already sodden ground. This seems to be a couple of times in a lifetime experience for Cambridge, with the last time being around 25 years ago. By 7 February the Cam had fallen a couple of feet and only a few pools were left as a reminder of what had happened.

Photographs taken 6 February, in approximate upstream to downstream (south to north and then east) order, with image size 800 x 600:
