The Fitzroy Barometer
This barometer was originally 'loaned' to mousehole in 1854 by Admiral Fitzroy, founder of the Meteorological Office.
Its purpose was to provide data to the Met Office to improve storm warnings but also to give the fishermen of the village warning of pending bad weather in an attempt to reduce the loss of life so common at the time
In 2009, the Meteorological Office gifted the barometer to Mousehole Harbour Authority.
