Research Tip (or why I'm currently kicking myself)

Having spent so much time trying to dig through old diaries and the like to find out what the weather was like in Derbyshire on a particular day, as well as searching for an online historic calendar that would give me all the info on sunrise/moonrise/moon-phase all on the same page, I now discover that The Times online archive lets me access all that and more in each day's weather forecast. Well, not Derbyshire exactly and the diaries are useful for what people thought about the weather, but I now know what was happening in major cities and tourist resorts every day.

Well worth remembering.
