    My God 32 inches :D Where is the Stye anyway? Some obscure Irish railway station I suspect, alternatively perhaps Welsh?

    On the Island we managed just 6.57, although I have no idea exactly Beldorne Tower is(though I have a few ideas), I can say that it is between 0 and 150 ft asl. :D

    Amazing all the same Mr Data.

    Kind regards,

    Russ

    The Stye is in the Lake District, near Styehead Tarn I believe. 32" of rain is not unique there, in November 1929 Stye Head recorded 38" and another 31.5" in December 1929, and around 50" fell in January 1928 at The Stye.

    Locally, Buxton recorded 262.4 mm ( 10.33") in October 1903 but this has since been eclipsed by the Octobers of 1998 with 352.6mm ( 13.88") and the wettest month there on record, and also 2000 with 310.9mm ( 12.24" )

    January 1948 also managed more than October 1903 with 308.6mm ( 12.15")
