Weathervanes

Gracing church steeples and rooftops since the early 10th century, weathervanes are an ancient device most famously used to gauge the direction of the wind. Traditionally, weathervanes were mounted onto the highest point of a building, but modern designs have been carefully crafted for a range of different locations. Each piece is supplied with all necessary fixings and a universal bracket, but for those trickier installations we also have an apex bracket with adjustable arms. If you don't have a suitable roof on your home for a weathervane, you could look at our garden weathervanes instead. These freestanding and mini weathervanes are ideal for sheds, garages and outbuildings.

Here at the Black Country Metal Works, we have been creating primarily decorative cast iron and copper weathervanes for over 30 years. Most are made right here in Shropshire by our in-house blacksmith, and carefully finished to our highest standards.

Rooster and cockerel weathervanes, otherwise known as wind vanes, are the oldest and most well-known designs, but our collection houses far more than just your standard offerings! Inspired by treasured pastimes and hobbies, you’ll find something to capture anyone’s heart within this collection. From specific dog breeds to fairy-tale inspired pieces to bespoke designs, our exquisite range of beautifully detailed weathervanes have been created from robust iron using traditional casting methods and are made stand the test of time. Each design has been powder coated for longevity, and can be finished in a choice of midnight black or rustic brown depending on your desired design. Our weathervanes are built to last and come with a 10 year lifetime structural guarantee.

Some assembly will be required and a comprehensive list of fitting instructions can be accessed here.  Please note that, as each piece is so heavy and the intricacy of design most important, you will not have the same level of accuracy or responsiveness you would achieve with the likes of a wind measurement device such as a wind sock.
