1953 Flood Netherlands

This category will show some of the events of 1953 in the Netherlands. We share a lot with the people of the Netherlands, their fellow countrymen saved Canvey from the sea many years ago. On the night of 31st Jan/1st February we were again in the same battle to save our people and reclaim our land.

With the 60th Anniversary nearly upon us I thought it a good idea to show a little of what our friends in Holland went through. How they have dealt with the tragedy and the Museum that tells the story, built from the caissons that filled the last breach in the dikes.
