Reply To: Holmfirth Flood Project
After the flood there was an auction of flood items to raise money for the affected people. My Great Grandfather , a textile machine maker, bought a table. It was (and maybe still is) known as the flood table. This story was told to me by a family member about ten years ago, who still had the table.
I was asked to write this by a lady from Holmfirth Civic Society when I was at the family history fair last week.
