60691852"In the south-east of England, north of the Thames, there has rarely been a period more rich in floods than November, 1852; in this month six inches of rain fell at Greenwich, and nearly eight inches in the Lee valley, following a September of 4 inches and October of 6 inches fall. The rain at Feilde's weir for November was about 2 inches on the second, and of the remaining six inches about 3 inches fell between the 10th and 15th of November, and about 2 inches between the 20th and 27th. The total flow off the ground for this month was 2.32 inches in depth, excluding a considerable quantity not gauged. . . . The floods committed serious damage from the Severn and Trent to the Thames, and laid the lowlands of Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, and Essex under water, for several weeks in many cases. . . . the memorable rains of November, 1852, raised high and low water of the Thames upwards of three feet on the 19th and 20th of that month, the tides being affected to this extent by the gorging of flood waters.
