Newgate, 6pm Friday 20 September 1946
At this time all the roads into Hopton were completely blocked! The Ship Inn on Steanard Lane
had all but sunk and the Navigation Tavern was full of the navigation!
The buildings under the bridge are the old Electrical Transformer building and the Iron Foundry which used to produce iron
road furniture ( drains, manhole covers etc) for use all over the country.
