The following was submitted by Mr. W. Hoggarth of Shap (Copy Hill) to the 'British Rainfall Guides' regarding the March of 1876

   'A prevalence of hail, rain and snow, with frequent thunder made the weather miserable. Labour at a standstill, the land is so wet; towards the end of the month the weather was more seasonable, seed-time just beginning.'

and on the 14th of the month he noted 'Heavy storm of wind for several hours, displacing slates, chimney pots.'

'HISTORICAL EVENTS' (above) is a new page that is a start in recording historical weather in our immediate locality.  

SHAP - a new page is being compiled and will have all the daily and monthly observations submitted by Mr. Hoggarth to the British Rainfall guides during 1874-90, plus whatever else I can find - coming soon.
