Floods on Bodgers Yard (1912)

August 1912 is still to this day listed as the worst Summer month in terms of rainfall since records began with nearly 200mm of rain recorded in many areas. The flooded Nene in Peterborough caused havoc in the many yards that populated the area we now know as Rivergate. Bodgers Yard today would be sited adjacent to the main entrance to the Asda Superstore.
