Hunstanton Remembers the 1953 Floods

Hunstanton Remembers the 1953 Floods

A Memorial Service was today held at the Cenotaph, Esplanade Gardens in memory of those who lost their lives in the 1953 Floods.

Hunstanton survivor Mr Neil Quincy was warmly welcomed, as were representatives from the US Air Force 67th Air Rescue Squadron.

On the night of 31 January 1953, a wall of water surged from the North Sea, devastating the east coast of England.

More than 300 people died and about 30,000 had to leave their homes in parts of Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk. More »

In Hunstanton, Norfolk, 31 people died, 15 local people and four families from the United States. The 67th Air Rescue Squadron from the US was based at RAF Sculthorpe, just a few miles up the road.

Survivor Neil Quincy, a taxi driver at the time, said: "It wasn't like a river overflowing, it was like a raging sea.

"The first bungalow on the road, it went in through the front and took the whole back wall out, everything."

To this day, Mr Quincy, whose home was on higher ground in the town, is haunted by the belief that if a birthday party planned for his daughter had gone ahead, many children would not have drowned.

Hot refreshments were served in the Town Hall afterwards to those attending. » Less
