Orlando Whistlecraft

St George, Thwaite, Suffolk

 

Orlando Whistlecraft (11 November 1810–3 March 1893) was an early English meteorologist who was born and died in the Eastern England village of Thwaite, Suffolk.

 

He was most notable for Whistlecraft's Weather Almanac published annually from 1856 to 1884 and for The Climate of England (1840) and Rural Gleanings (1851). The National Meteorological Archive in Exeter contains his weather diaries for Thwaite from 1827 to 1892. (Wikipedia)

 

Tiny, redundant church in north Suffolk. It was bought by the local community for a pound from the diocese, who were no doubt glad to see the back of it. They now face the daunting task of raising £80,000 to make it safe and sound. The roof is the priority.
