Rainham Snow

Although we have had snow this week in Rainham the quantity has been nothing like that seen in January 1987. Some parts of Kent this week had up to 20 cm (8 inches) yet in 1987 the recorded amount of snow locally was 22 inches (55 cm) of snow over 2 nights from 12 to 13 January.

Parts of the area were cut off and near Lenham a train was stuck in a snowdrift for over a week before being dug out. You can see more photos and information about this on the snow page of the website
