In 1607 a high spring tide and gale-force winds caused the Bristol Channel to flood the surrounding land creating a vast inland sea, washing away livestock and killing hundreds. In a nation unusually preoccupied by the weather, such incidents are etched into the annals. This book discusses the most extreme weather in British history, from the Great London Tornado of 1091 to the icy winter of 1947 and the October storm of 1987.
