1898: A School Flooded

posted in: Nantmor, Newspapers | 0

A remarkable scene was witnessed last week at Nantmor, Beddgelert, North Wales. The River Glaslyn overflowed the banks, and few children could reach Nantmor Schools. Those children who were able to attend the school had not been there half an hour when the water rushed in under the door, and filled the building to a depth of twelve inches. The children got on the benches, and ultimately had to wade knee-deep through the water to their homes.
