Only thing I remember happening in 1987 was Coventry City WINNING THE FA CUP!!!  Gasp

It's been all down hill since then, but hey there's always next season as any true Sky Blue will tell you.  Playful Wink

Hi Phantom,

Yes there was damage in Norfolk during the 87 hurricane.

Bill M or any of the other locals could probably tell you more about the after effects but I do know there were caravans and mobile homes overturned as well as loads of felled trees.

We were on board at the Waveney River Centre during the storm which was a night I will never forget.

If you check out the holiday tales section, there is a thread there about the hurricane.

The only thing I remember apart from Allo Allo`s Gordon Kaye`s near death experience, is we were traveling down for our holday shortly afterwards and seeing the damage, lots of felled trees!

Every road out of South Walsham was blocked by a fallen tree of  about 3 foot diameter, the Fairhaven gardens lost in the region of 200 mature trees. It was classed as a hurricane.My boat was on a mud weight on SW broad and was blown clear across and ended part way up Fleet dyke

Hi,

We had one houseboat sunk, and another lifted right out of the broad and deposited on the bank.  I can't really remember all the details as I was just a lad at the time, but I remember it being terribly exciting!

I imagine I wouldn't find it as exciting if it were ever to happen nowadays...

Cheers

John

Hello everyone

I was taxi-driving in the 80's, and round here (Heacham / Hunstanton / Snettisham) had caravans and cars just thrown around.  Looked dreadful.

I  also had an occasional fare to Yarmouth and saw all the telegraph poles along the Acle straight looking like the tower of Pisa - all on a slant!  Must have cost the electricity board / bt lots of pennies.
