The town of Newtownards, on the shore of Strangford Lough, has, during its history, been subject to flooding. This is a collection of photographs showing some of the measures used to protect the town against flooding. Those photographs submitted by me appear as a matter of geographical and historical record only. I have no connection with any official body. They should not be interpreted as expressing any opinion about the adequacy of the defences.
