Tonbridge Daily Snippet

That was some storm last night and the rain was well needed. The grass in my garden was slowly turning brown and my allotment was in severe need of nourishment.

It seems severe summer thunderstorms are nothing new, as a school wall was washed down in Lansdowne Road when torrential rain hit Tonbridge during a thunderstorm in July 1874. The records show that 3 inches of rain fell on the town in only 2 hours.
