The 1975-76 drought is the most severe experienced in the UK during the period for which instrumented records are available. This report comprises a contemporary and comprehensive review of the drought and its wide range of impacts together with a retrospective analysis, undertaken in 2010. The latter, benefitting in particular from an additional 35 years of river flow data, confirms the outstanding nature of the 1975-76 drought.
