2015 Dartmoor Society Research Lecture

Posted in Events on Monday 23rd November 2015 at 9:48am

At 7pm on Friday 13th November 70 people, both members and non-members attended the 2015 Dartmoor Society Research Lecture at the Dolphin Hotel, Bovey Tracey, presented by Will Hand and entitled “Dartmoor Weather – Love it or Hate It”.

Will Hand is a local meteorologist and has kept an amazing record of data relating primarily to the weather of the Haytor area, but he also offers on his website a weekly forecast for the wider Dartmoor region.

Will first started recording data in January 2003 and one of the most interesting facts he has discovered over the years is that September is the driest month on Dartmoor.

After Will’s excellent presentation the Dolphin Hotel provided us all with an admirable buffet spread enabling all the attendees to have a chance to socialise and discuss the wealth of data Will had communicated from his findings.

Everyone agreed it had been a very informative and most pleasurable event.
