The weather brought blizzard conditions to Essex in January 1881, and the railway route through Witham was so severely affected that it took 100 men 24 hours to clear the line. In 1983, the warm weather in July led to the highest average temperature to be measured since the 17th century at 27C. For Witham, it was the driest summer weather since 1921. In January 1990, stormy weather was so severe that the entire thatched roof of the Cart Lodge at Cressing Temple Barns was blown off.
