St Giles Weather Vanes - Unique in the UK!

St Giles Traditional Weather Vanes are hand made in Britain by skilled tradesmen who appreciate the value of true craftsmanship.


We take pride in creating a product that combines the light, corrosion resistant qualities of aluminium with the beauty and elegance of traditional and contemporary weathervane designs. Because of our attention to detail and strict quality control, we are confident that your weathervane will give you a lifetime of pleasure.


A complete weather vane is comprised of three parts:

A VANE HEAD which is fixed by two socket screws to the indicator arrow of the MAIN ASSEMBLY which is in turn attached via a ball joint to a MOUNTING BRACKET.


All our vane heads are available in traditional black or beautiful hand painted enamel finishes.

By selecting the three components separately you can have exactly the weather vane you want and be able to install it quickly and easily.
