[R] reading text files directly into program from net

Hello   I am working with daily rainfall data for the UK from 1915 onwards
from the Met Office.  The data is on this site:


There are many files for the different counties.  For example there are
seven station files for Berwickshire in this site:


The first station in this dataset
 has the name  00265_mertoun
is a code and location name, again for example, and inside is a text file

It's easy but time-consuming to download the files one by one - I am sure
that it is possible to read them directly into an R program but whatever
coding or path I try to use I get an error.  I can't find an example online
which I can tweak to allow me to do this.

can anyone help?  Thanks Nick Wray
