With the changeable weather that typifies British summer time, a Vintage Barometer could be very useful.
Pedlars currently has a selection of barometers dating from the 1940s and 1950s. They have all been restored so are in perfect working order, although whether they will be more reliable than a modern weather forecast can’t be guaranteed.
Prices start from £130. Contact Pedlars via their website for full details of the available range.
