“…since records began” – Christopher Wren’s first automatic weather station

We restart the weekly blog with a contribution from Professor Giles Harrison. With the blog being down over the summer, Giles‘ contribution was posted on Professor Maarten Ambaum’s excellent blog, where we direct readers until regular service resumes next week.


The tercentenary of Wren’s death this year is being marked with a series of events, including an exhibition on his ideas about Sign Language, Beehives, Anaesthesia, Astronomy, Microscopy, Urban Design, Sheltered Living and Weather Recording, at the Old Royal Naval College at Greenwich. The exhibition continues until 12 Nov 2023, https://ornc.org/whats-on/christopher-wren-what-legacy-now/
