Flooding at Stubbins Bridge, Ramsbottom, is nothing new but you have to admit that this particular flood, photographed in 1961 was a pretty spectacular one.

It looks as though this bus to Bolton had managed to get itself stuck in the rising waters, blocking the road.

It’s not clear if passengers were climbing out of the bus via the driver’s side or if the gentlemen in wellies you can see was trying to help work out how to get the bus out of its predicament
