Green Templeton College | Oxford

The main garden from the Radcliffe Observatory

The College gardens are maintained by the Head Gardener, Michael Pirie.

See more information about the gardens.

On the main lawn in front of the Observatory is the Radcliffe meteorological Station. Daily readings are made here for the Met Office weather monitoring and forecasting, a legacy of the days when the Observatory itself was fully operational. Readings have been made on the site since the 18th century.
