ST MICHAEL'S SQUARE

RAIN MATE BY ANDY PLANT

Rain Mate is a specially designed feature for St Michael’s Square, Mytholmroyd.

Rain Mate is a transforming meeting place and information post for the village, combining a local weather station, information screen and animated automatic rain / sun canopy.

The column automatically opens each lunchtime at 12 noon , slowly transforming into a circular “ umbrella “ canopy, finally closing two hours later. It will also be opened for special events in the square and at the church.

The lower half of the column is constructed of local stone set into a stainless steel framework. The top half is a beaten copper cover housing the umbrella canopy. Around the base of the column is a circlular wooden  seat.

The Weather Station is situated at eye level on the column. It displays all the local weather details. Wind speed, direction, rainfall, humidity and air pressure.

The information board is either a digital screen or traditional notice board displaying local community information.

The ‘ Umbrella’  Canopy forms the copper top section of the column. It slowly opens like a flower, transforming into the protective roof sheltering the people below.
