Maulds Meaburn - Nov' 2009 seems so long ago and was meant to be the holder of the wettest ever month for a long time! But another one like last year (drier and colder than average) would do quite nicely. The mean temperature has varied from 3.64°c (2015) to 8.12°c (2011).

  The following was submitted by Mr. W. Hoggarth of Shap (Copy Hill) to the 'British Rainfall Guides' regarding the November of 1878 -

  'Very dark and cold; snow has fallen on several days, but not in great quantities; from the 18-27th heavy fogs.'

          He did not comment on any particular days in the month, the following is taken from the Reagill school logbook:  

1st 'Cold prevalent this week, four children absent.  8th heavy fall of snow, six children absent.   and 12th 'heavy fall of snow, four children absent.'
