BILL Young, author of Lewes Then and Now, once dropped in on Rouser to show him this 1960 photograph of a flooded Cliffe High Street, Lewes.

The picture was actually taken by one Peter Hunt. Note the old Tesco self-service store, now Bill’s grocery store and restaurant.

A gallant gentleman is carrying a lady across the flooded road and a number 25 bus, bound for Brighton, is passing through the two-way traffic.
