Garton End Road Flood (1939)

After the thaw of 12″ of snow, much of Peterborough was under water in early 1939 as this scene on Garton End Road shows.

Ironically, the water had re-established itself on the site of what was formerly a natural pond that had been filled in recently.

Today this would be at the junction of Pyecroft (left) and Garton End Road.
