Anyone with interest in rainfall particularly in the Cumbrian Mountains may like to see my report following the 150th Anniversary BRO meeting organised by RMetS on 17th April. This contains interesting information about George James Symons grave, the availability of rain gauge data from the Met Office network and the possibility of some kind of meeting/visit to the Seathwaite, Stye, Sprinkling Tarn and Honister sites. Please see the the PDF on my website.
I would be particularly interested to receive feedback on any or all of these subjects.
The historical information I have gathered about Seathwaite etc is mainly from the volumes of "British Rainfall" so if someone has further information then I would like to have access to it. Please see the weather page on my website mentioned below.

I will be contacting Roy, to express my interest in joining him on the trip to stye Head, etc - you may want to read his article, because if even one of the people mentioned does come along it would be a good day out.

I do intend to do a mountain walk out of Seathwaite, hopefully soon(ish) and go take a look at the Stye Head gauge - when it happens I'll take a digital camera.
the number of times that i must have walked near to it....

Unfortunately I do not not have any further info' on Cumbrian rainfall - I did take a look at the 'Cumbrian' section in the bookshop opposite the Cathedral (Carlisle) but there was nothing on the weather.

I would hate if we ended up bidding against each other (not that I have looked on e-bay)
How much did it cost?
