There's also the Vaisala humidity calculator, which is available both on the website and as a small downloadable application:

Stratfield Mortimer, Berkshire - central southern England
51.4°N, 1.0°W, 60 m AMSL, station grade A - AAAA47R
Records commenced here 1987 - local records available back to 1862
