Fondest memory: In the Easter of 1998 Evesham was subjected some of the worst floods ever seen and certainly the worst that I had seen.On the Thursday night I was going home from the pub at about 11.00pm , I crossed the bridge home and went to the kebab shop. On coming out of the shop I turned back towards the river I noticed a small trickle of water crossing the road but never thought anymoreabout it, thinking it was just a water leak somewhere and went home to bed. This and the photos in my travelogue resulted from the trickle of water few hours later.
Favorite thing: The Winter of 2009- 2010 has been one of the worst that I can remember for a long time with snow last over a week at one point.
