Sunniest is Eastbourne with average 146 days of sunshine per year, or 34,6 hours per week. But no mountains and Lakes there!
St Osyth, Essex is the driest place in the UK, with only 19inch approx of rain on average per year recorded over the last 40 years! But on the down side St Osyth Beach contains Essex's largest concentration of static caravan parks!
Seathwaite is pelted by around 124 inches of rain each year. Gosh can you believe it, no wonder we have Beautiful Lakes and gushing waterfalls and I have to wear full mountain gear and wellingtons to go to the post office.
This doesn't show how wild it was!
The tall approx 30 foot Christmas tree arrived in Keswick and was put up today, I hope it lasts till the festive time
