This paper compares the climate at Nettlecombe Court with two other stations further inland in West Somerset. The three recording sites and the data used in this study are carefully described. Coverage of temperature includes mean air temperature, monthly and seasonal variations, spells of hot and cold weather and extremes of temperature. A similar coverage is given for rainfall including extreme daily rainfall totals and the occurrence of wet spells and droughts. The study ends with some observations on climate change in the last half century.
