"Floods at Canterbury - The heavy snowfall and subsequent thaw last Wednesday week resulted in the River Stour overflowing at Canterbury. The water entered the back gardens of St. Peter's Place until matters on Thursday reached a critical point. During that night the flood invaded a number of houses and covered a depth of about a foot in St. Peter's Place itself, and pentrated into Black Griffin Lane. Pound Lane and St. Peter's Lane were also flooded. Last Friday's high tide proved the peak point, after which the waters receded, and by Saturday morning the streets were again clear." TDEAEKN - Friday, 3, February 1939
