Welcome to Queensbury, West Yorkshire, UK.
Queensbury village is on the A647, mid-way between Bradford and Halifax, within a few miles of Leeds which is to the ENE of us and the Pennine chain of hills which is to the West of us.

Although the centre of the village is a little higher, the elevation of this weather station is 320 metres (1,050ft).
Unless you know different, we have the five highest primary schools in the UK -
|Outside : Now||11.9||°C|
|~ ~ : Max, Today||13.0||°C|
|~ ~ : Min, Today||11.8||°C|
We also have the highest secondary school in the UK - Queensbury School (334m).
The village is also the home of the world famous Black Dyke Band. I must say, however, that my personal allegiance is to the equally world famous Brighouse & Rastrick Band which lives about 8Km down the hill from Queensbury (that's 290m down).
Wind readings are temporarily unavailable
From my anemometer I have very long distance views to both North and South. The Yorkshire peaks of Ingleborough (723m, 2372ft) and Pen-y-ghent (694m, 2277ft) are about 36 miles (58Km) to the NW and Emley Moor TV/Radio transmitter (264m elevation + 330m tower = total 594m, 1,949ft) is 13 miles (21Km) to the SSE. An end-to-end view of nearly 50 miles.
