FLOODING - NOT A NEW PROBLEM!
Flooding in Lamberhurst, 1461
"John, Bishop of Rochester, in 1461, changed the feast of the dedication of this church from the feast of St. Michael, on account of the floods which frequently happened here about that time of the year, and hindered its being celebrated with due solemnity, and transferred it to the Wednesday next following the feast of the sacred relics; to be held yearly on that day."
