Sample from the UK 10-year rainfall sheets

The 10-year rainfall sheets are lose-leaf forms, each recording monthly rainfall at a single UK station over a period of 10-years. The collection of these in the UK Meteorological Archive comprises about 65,000 such sheets covering 1677-1960 (though the early years include very few stations). These data were manually digitised in spring 2020 by the Rainfall Rescue citizen science project.
