Southern England was battered by unsually severe gales for September on the 16th of 17th of that month in 1935.

98mph at Pendennis Castle

96mph at St Mary's. Scilly

92mph at Lizard and Manston

88mph at Cardington

81mph at Calshot

80mph at Larkhill

77mph at Lymphe

72mph at Dover

Many telegraph wires were brought down, trees uprooted, and lives were lost at sea and on land. One unsual effect was a thick deposit left on may windows in Cornwall that varied from dark brown to grey and had a salty taste.


From the Times of 18th September 1935
