School of Geography weather station

Today I was lucky enough to visit the roof of the School of Geography at Nottingham to look at the old weather station. The School used to record the weather daily until 1981, when it was considered that the process was becoming too expensive and time consuming and that the data wasn’t really being used. I’m planning a trip to the University archives at Kings Meadow next week to look at the records. I’d also like to find out more about other University weather stations. More information soon…

    Thanks Les. Today I have been looking at the records from the old weather station in the School of Geography at Nottingham and I also took some photos of the old instruments – photos to follow! Off to explore Leicester museum tomorrow.
