Before the motorway was built all traffic came through Knebworth – the Knebworth High Street was part of the Great North Road.
I worked in the old LH&D Co-op (on the left of the picture). We were flooded in the shop and store room to about 6 inches. Station Road was also flooded – the cellars were flooded and they took priority over us for the Fire Brigate. We still carried on working! Luckily it was all wooden floors so the flood water could drain through.
Can you remember what year this was? It could have been 1960. If you know please add a comment below.
