N.B:  The background in the galleries has been dimmed to enhance picture radiance.

This section of the site presents a sequence of 'flood related' pictures; beginning at the dam itself, then taking you along the trail of the flood. The pictures are accompanied by a fairly comprehensive set of notes and related anecdotes, many of which are quoted directly from one or other of the three 'Sheffield Flood' books: their exact source is indicated thus:

GFAS = A Complete History of the Great Flood at Sheffield

CDDD = Collapse of the Dale Dyke Dam 1864

DSSF = The Dramatic Story of The Sheffield Flood

The section concludes with details and pictures of many of the characters ('the cast') who were associated with the flood and its aftermath, along with a range of flood-related artefacts.

The text which appears, at intervals, in small 'white boxes' (such as this one), is quoted directly from a selection of notices/adverts which appeared in the local newspapers shortly after the flood.
