BRITAIN’S first cloud watching platform will open along our coast next week with BBC weatherman Paul Hudson set to cut the ribbon.
The £30,000 wooden structure on the beach at Anderby Creek will allow visitors to recline on specially designed seating and identify various cloud formations.
Paul Hudson said: “We are doing the weather live from there that evening so it should be fun!”
It has been designed by Michael Trainor, the artist behind Mablethorpe’s Star of the East feature and the gin and tonic shaped beach hut. Mr Trainor said: “People often perceive cloudy skies as a negative thing, but actually clouds are beautiful, natural forms and if we learn to enjoy and understand them perhaps we will enjoy our daily lives just a little bit more.”
Visitors to the facility can rest on the seating and use a series of self-operated cloud-mirrors to ‘magic the sky down to the earth
Gavin Pretor-Pinney, founder of The Cloud Appreciation Society, said: “The Cloud Bar is an inspired way to remind the public some of nature’s most varied and beautiful displays take place daily above our heads.”
