St Swithun's Day comes early to Winchester

Swithun, of course, is our most noted local saint. Read all about him at

Swithun's alleged relationship with rain is well known - if it rains on St Swithun's Day (15 July) it's supposed to rain for forty days. Ever since I wrote a piece for this blog about the south of England drought and hanging baskets in Winchester it has rained every day.

Has St Swithun's Day come early to Winchester this year? Is it my fault?

I hope not.
