Margaret Grove Flood 1931

In 1931 there was a flash storm and the allotments or bowling green as well as the road flooded. If you walk there you will see that there is quite a drop to the houses so for the road to flood suggests a large quantity of water fell.

The picture below that is of the flooded allotments. Whether this was the same event or at another time is unknown.

Do you have any other pictures or recollections of the event or more information?
