This seems to be out of use, and will soon be shadowed by a tree.
A Stevenson Screen allows circulation of the air while shading instruments, particularly thermometers, from direct sunshine. Fully equiped it would house - a thermograph, recording temperatures; a hygrograph, recording humidity; wet and dry bulb thermometers, also called a psychrometer; maximum and minimum thermometer; and perhaps a barograph, recording pressure. Nearby there would have been a rain gauge, and an anemometer for wind speed.
