In January 1894, the weather brought record low temperatures measuring -13C. The weather was so cold that the National Skating Association metropolitan branch used Dagenham lake to hold quarter-mile races for amateur skaters. The weather offered extreme snow again in 1955, but it was as late as the 17th of May. The heavy snow reported in Dagenham that day meant that the temperature measured at 7 pm was only 0C.
