    I was researching WW2 History during my small home town village I grew up in as a child and thought I would share what I found. I came across this first count story of a young boy growing up along Hambledon Road in Hampshire. It was commonly used as the main road for troops/trucks/tanks to pass along to get to the Portsmouth docks.
    In fact whilst growing up in the 1990s/2000s the village was plagued by floods almost every year. This is because many of the natural flowing rivers/ditches that ran along the Hambledon road had been filled with dirt in order to allow the space for all of the trucks/tanks to fit through. As the damage had been done the underground springs had no way to get rid of the access water so many of the fields on the lower ground next to the ditch would turn into a bog and eventually the entire village would flood as a result. People used to kayak down the street to get about. Many of the houses have cellars and they are always the first thing to flood and would often overflow into the street.reverse phone lookup nba reddit pcpartpicker
