The seawall, Newtownards (February 2014)
Today was cold and windy (note the windsock at lower middle) with rain spreading after lunchtime. The seawall was not very hospitable with only a few seasoned walkers out none visible here. For a complete contrast in the weather, later in the month see J5073 : The seawall, Newtownards - February 2014(2).

The town of Newtownards, on the shore of Strangford Lough, has, during its history, been subject to flooding. This is a collection of photographs showing some of the measures used to protect the town against flooding. Those photographs submitted by me appear as a matter of geographical and historical record only. I have no connection with any official body. They should not be interpreted as expressing any opinion about the adequacy of the defences.
