Of the larger first-order observatories, eight were originally proposed but pressure
from the Treasury meant that only seven were established, with the promise of some
fifteen years' funding to maintain them, by which point, it was believed, sufficient data
would have been collected materially to improve knowledge of weather patterns over
the British Isles. 58 The seven observatories of the reconstituted Meteorological Office
were spread across Britain and Ireland: two in Scotland, at the universities of Aberdeen
and Glasgow (the proposed eighth would have been in Wick or Thurso in northern
Scotland) ; two in Ireland, at the Armagh Observatory and on Valentia Island; and three
in England, at Falmouth, Stonyhurst College in Lancashire, and Kew in London, the
hub of the network.
