The Great Storm 

Between 2am and 6am on 16 October 1987, winds reaching up to 110mph ripped across the South East. We lost hundreds of thousands of trees across thousands of acres of land. Three decades on, the effects endure in the landscapes - and memories – of places caught up in the eye of the Great Storm.
