The weather in 1888 was so extreme that Essex suffered from storms and floods that were severe enough that bridges were washed away. In July and August of that year, the rainfall in Epping was measured at 299mm, which is over 40% of the expected total annual rainfall in that part of Essex. In the August of 1911, however, the dry weather meant that rainfall in Epping was measured at only 12mm for the whole month. The weather of 1987 that caused the Great Storm led to more than 60 trees falling on the Central Line rail track that runs between Epping and Ongar, causing the route to be closed for three days whilst cleanup and repairs were made.
