Princess Margaret 1984

Where the wall gave way in 1953

These photos show Princess Margaret when she visited the island to open the new flood barrier in April 1984. Here she has been shown where the wall gave way in the 1953 floods. The steps you can see behind her were built especially for the occasion. They are still in use today.
