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

   'The month began with heavy showers, but the 13th was a dreadfully cold, wet and windy day; most of the land along the banks of the river was under water; the remainder of the month was fine. Crops nearly all cut, potatoes generally in bad condition; turnips a failure.'

His comments about individual days in the month included: 3rd 'Frost at night' with thunder heard on the 1st, 21st and 30th and that storm on the 13th was a 'deluge of rain, 2.24 in.'
