Re the weather in the Lane End Coleford area that December 1888, this MAY have been relevant.


FLOODS IN MONMOUTHSHIRE.
Monmouth and the districts adjacent to the Wye;, Monnow, and Trotby have been visited by a heavy flood, the consequence of the continuous downpour of rain on Thursday aud Friday. The Wye rose very rapidly, and a large area is under water. In the lower part of Monmouth the streets were inundated on Friday afternoon.
