Did you know that the wettest place in Britain is Crib Goch, a mountain ridge near Llanberis? Over the last three decades that particular spot in beautiful Snowdonia has averaged 4473mm rainfall annually. Compare that if you will with the driest spot in these isles, St Osyth in Essex, with 507mm; or the supposedly wet Manchester which averages 810mm.
