  The following was submitted by Mr. W. Hoggarth of Shap (Copy Hill) to the 'British Rainfall Guides' regarding the July of 1877

   'A wet, cold, dark month, unfavourable for the crops in general. Distant thunder, with flashes of lightning, mostly at night, have been common. Great flood about the middle of the month; hay is a heavy crop here, but is spoilt, little has been got in yet.'

His comments about individual days in the month included: 25th 'Sultry morning, cold afternoon' and thunder was heard on the 5-7th, 12th and 14th.
