On September 26, 1907, Feilding was inundated with rain for three days straight, causing floodwaters to rise in town and in surrounding rural areas. At the Beattie Street crossing, the water was right across the surface of Kimbolton Road, the Railway Yards were covered in water, and the footpath from the Council Chambers to Manchester Square was immersed. The Makino Stream reached a level not touched in ten years prior to this flood. Property was damaged, and there were several slips that came down on the railway, disrupting train services and causing general frustration amongst travellers.
