The highest tidal levels in the last century were recorded on 13 December 1981 along the Somerset and Avon coastline. A high spring tide of 7.95m AOD (above Ordnance datum) was recorded at Bridgwater with a 1.45m surge. The predicted tide had been 6.5m AOD with a 0.38m surge. At Weston-super-Mare and Avonmouth, the predicted tides were 7.2m AOD. The actual tides recorded were 8.10m AOD at Weston-super-Mare and 8.83m AOD at Avonmouth, with a 1.7m surge. The tides combined with storm force westerly winds – gale force 8 to 10, up to 50 knots.

The children of years 5 and 6 at Uphill Community Primary School in Uphill village, Weston-super-Mare investigated the causes and effect of the 1981 flood in the village.
