We have seen many high tides in recent months. On Sunday March 18 I witnessed these dramatic scenes as the river flooded over the sea wall and into the Model Boating Lake situated behind the Promenade. In the course of 15 minutes the area was flooded to the same level as the river
The sequence of pictures were taken on
March 18 2007 at high tide just before midday.
The picture above taken in October 2006 shows the normal tranquil scene as members of the Maldon Model Barge club sail their beautiful models.
