Bidston Observatory

Bidston Observatory


Birkenhead, United Kingdom (GB)
Picture
Bidston Observatory is a recognised weather observation station on Wirral. The observatory was built in 1866 and we are in the enviable position of having an unbroken series of met records dating back to 1867. We even have records from the original Liverpool Observatory built at Waterloo Dock in 1845, hand written in copper plate probably by the original director himself John Hartnup, former secretary of the Royal Astronomical Society.
