Quirky little find just off the central cross. Worth a look as you are passing. I have to say more to pop up these photos!

A piece of local social history.

With generations of people used to the convenience of weather reports on radio, television and now on smart phones and computers, this 19th century barometer is a reminder of how locals had to rely on such simple technology before venturing out to sea. And it is lovely to note that although it is such an antique piece of equipment, it’s daily measurements have continued to record weather patterns for the area.

An interesting historic barometer outside a small RNLI building. Worth a look as you pass by. Not much to say about it as it is what it is!

As you walk down Goat Street this old barometer invites a quick 10minutes of your time to see a bit of the RNLI legacy in Pembrokeshire.

Worth a photo

The RNLI barometer is in Goat Street near the top on the left and is a remnant of an age gone by. Encased in a cupboard on the street you can see the old barometer and check the weather.

We just happened to spot this lovely old barometer as we were passing and it fascinated me. It is a 19 century barometer in a glass case so everyone can look at this lovely old piece of equipment. I came home and researched more about it.
Every morning Malcolm Gray, MBE, former lifeboat Coxswain, reads St Davids 19th century barometer - it's at the top of Goat st
The readings are logged and pressure trends go back many decades.
This is a beautiful example of a 19th century mercury barometer inscribed with ‘RNLB No 104 Institution. James Glaisher FRS’.
Make sure you have a look - you won't be disappointed
