A FLOOD SIREN is now on display at the Welland and Deepings Internal Drainage Board’s Pinchbeck Marsh Land Drainage Museum.

The siren was based at Wisbech but after the £13million refurbishment of 8.6km of defences the need for the siren had diminished.

David Branton, vice-chairman, accepted the siren on behalf of the board and said it would form an important part of the museum and a reminder of how flood warning were issued in the past.

The museum is situated off the A16 just north of Spalding and is open from now until September 9 this year, Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10am to 3pm.
