First photos of Marlow Rowing Club fire

| |

Tragedy struck at Marlow’s historic rowing club in the early hours of this morning, when a fire gutted the club house. As well as damage to the building, many boats and historical artifacts/photos were damaged or destroyed.

A very sad day for the club and Marlow as a whole.

The collection of photos here give some indication of the devastation caused, and are provided courtesy of Simon Fielder of Sound and Images.

[Update 4-8-11, Marlow Rowing Club have launched a “Fire and Building Fund” to help them rebuild for the future]
