Back in stock for 2021, the Traditional ‘Stour’ Copper Rain Gauge brings a slice of countryside tranquillity to your home. Named after the River Stour that forms the historic boundary between Suffolk and Essex, this eye-catching instrument will offer an accurate and dependable method to monitor the rain for years to come.
Meandering through the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the River Stour has influenced notable landscape artists such as John Constable and Thomas Gainsborough. A haven for wildlife, the river flows by quaint villages, rolling meadows and ancient woodland along its route to the North Sea.
Our 1037 Traditional Copper Rain Gauge was described by Amateur Gardening as "A quality rain gauge beautifully made and likely to last a lifetime" and received a great score of 13/15 based on features, performance and value for money.
The rain gauge consists of a copper and brass funnel, copper collector and calibrated plastic measure. The rain is collected and funnelled into the inner plastic measure from which the contents can be measured. Any additional rainfall is collected in the large copper body of the rain gauge and can be measured by pouring it into the supplied measuring jar.
Copper rain gauges are universally used by meteorologists, academics and in commercial applications, and also make an ideal 7th wedding anniversary gift for the theme of copper.
