Did you know that the driest place in Britain is St Osyth in Essex? The village just west of Clacton has consistently been so over recent years, with an average annual rainfall of 507mm. To put that into context: one definition of a desert is that it has rainfall below 250mm; Sydney averages 1217mm precipitation; and Rome 875mm. The only way is Essex then.
