UHI, some local from encroaching housing.
This tends to be the coldest met site in the South of England, located in the upper Thames valley, perhaps more in the South Midlands, not far from Oxford.
I have been past Benson hundreds of times and yes the place has grown. Ground images can be explored to see the age of housing.
Flying as far as I can recall has tended to light. The met station will have been relocated as the original station was developed.
In this case we are getting back into Bing coverage, see the UHI problem here won’t be major.
