In November 1703, Britain was battered by a devastating storm, resulting in widespread flooding and over 8,000 deaths; the worst storm in the nation's history, however, is largely forgotten. Drawing from an account by Daniel Defoe and other primary sources, Martin Brayne transports us back to those fateful days, recounting what happened and noting how profiteers emerged to take advantage of the country's misfortunes. The cast includes Queen Anne, the great diarist John Evelyn, Admiral Beaumont; and Henry Winstanley, who had the misfortune to be in the wooden lighthouse which he had designed on Eddystone Rocks.
