For detailed location, see the linked map.
OS Grid ref: SJ230840
Altitude: 115ft (35m)
The station is open on all sides and so reads true in all directions. However, due to shelter from the land, the station will read lower than the wind out to sea for directions in the north-east half of the compass. more...
The station is a good indicator for winds at the nearby Thurstaston Cliffs, a flying site of the North Wales Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club.
