  Mr. W. Hoggarth of Shap (Copy Hill) made the following comments in the 'British Rainfall Guides' regarding the July of 1880:-

  'Rather an unseasonable month, rain having fallen on 22 days. Hay crop very heavy; about two thirds cut at the end of the month. Corn a good crop, but rather late. Potatoes and turnips look well.'

          he made no comments about particular days, the following is from Elterwater:  

17th 'Thunder and lightning in night, much damage done within a few miles'
