The station came online on the 2nd January 2011 and is using
Weather Display and FreshWDL to collect and display the weather information collected. Solar and UV sensors came online on 29th January 2011.

The web site has been created in RapidWeaver 8 - Web Design Tool utilising Nick Cates Design - Reasons Template as a basis for the site. It makes use of Weather Display’s numerous “Custom Tags” and auto generated Graphs to provide the information displayed.

November 2012 the Weather Station moved to the Wood End area within Harpenden so readings may vary but the history will build up again in 2013 and onwards.
