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

   'June in this district was rather a wet month (4.42 in), with distant thunder; a little keen frost in the early part of the month. Still there is every prospect of a good hay crop, but it will be a week to 10 days late. Corn, in some places, looking well and promises a fair crop. Potatoes are not looking very well; turnips are just coming into leaf. Pastures looking well and cattle may now get a good bite.'

His comments about individual days in the month included: 6th 'Great storm all day' and thunder was heard on the 4th, 11th, 19-20th and 28th.
