Richard Marks

Nestling in the South Downs, Petersfield has its own very special microclimate.

We measure almost twice the rainfall of Portsmouth yet are protected against the cooler onshore breezes in summer.

That’s why our volunteers are inspired by local forecaster Richard Marks whose instinctive understanding of our local conditions and archive of weather observations and measurements goes back decades.
