Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Simple Weathervane

I post another in a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday.  This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting.  Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too!  If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.

Today's weather vane was photographed in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #317?  Scroll down to find the answer.

Today's weathervane can be seen above the Provident Bank in Bedford, New Hampshire.  This bank is located at 1 Atwood Lane in the new Goffe Mill Plaza on South River Road.  

This weathervane is very simple.  It's just a directional arrow pointing to the wind, and a finial on the top of the pole.  Nothing more.  For brand new construction, this is very different.  Usually modern architects take advantage of all the fancy new weather vanes, or take time to put a bit of advertising art in the design. This weathervane is refreshing, and the DeStefano architects of this building seem to reflect the colonial roots of the Goffe family mills and homes that once stood in this area.  The website of this architectural firm has a slogan "Lavishingly detailed design.  Clothed in simplicity".
