Where is this flood scene?

Floods 1947
Floods 1947

WE came across this photograph in the office recently.

It looks as though it was taken at the height of the 1947 floods which badly affected Gainsborough.

However, we aren’t sure of the location so if anyone does know please call us on 01427 615323 or 01427 619572.

With regard to the photo in the 13th October edition of The Standard, several readers contacted us with various suggestions including the old convent at Lea and Branston Sanitorium, but a Mr Burke (friend of The Delvers) and a Mrs Harris were 100 per cent sure it is of Belton House, near Grantham.

Thanks to everyone who contacted the office.
