The following was submitted by Mr. W. Hoggarth of Shap (Copy Hill) to the 'British Rainfall Guides' regarding the September of 1874

   'Considering the quantity of rain that has fallen, mostly in the early part of the day, September has been a warm mild month; harvest has all been gathered in; potato crops are good in Weatmoreland; thunder has been heard and lightning seen, but at a great distance.'
