    Several websites (e.g., quiztime quizzes) state that Cumbria is the wettest county in England. Of course, this would only be based on a seasonal average. Different years may have different amounts of precipitation.

    Rainfall in England varies widely. The Lake District is the wettest part, with average annual totals exceeding 2,000 mm (this is comparable with that in the western Highlands of Scotland). The Pennines and the moors of south-west England are almost as wet. However, all of East Anglia, much of the Midlands, eastern and north-eastern England, and parts of the south-east receive less than 700 mm a year.

    here in Kent they are all panicing that there is not enough water, even though it rains so much that all the drains overflow frequently. but i suppose that the south east has the least overall (with long periods of drought between the floods must average it out) the wettest city in Englnad is Manchester, but the area in the whole of the norht west i thin recieves the most rainfall
