Brisk walk into town during a 25min gap changing trains. Fortunately found it without a problem: no tree problem at this time of the year, and aerial just visible in the gloom and snow flurries.

Last time I was in Carlisle was to visit the Brunton Park ground in 1997. On that day came up on the train from Dent. Today, spotted this active station on leaving the cathedral.

Followed advice from MAC.HAWK. The only problem being the trees have grown so had to walk across road to Kudos hair and Beauty to see station.

Thanks to MAC.HAWK the hardest part of doing this one is parking the car - brilliant log as this one could have been tricky to spot otherwise

Followed the previous log's instructions and worked perfectly. No hassle. Had already spotted the antenna from the roof if Carlisle Castle (there's a cheeky horizontal cut benchmark on the parapet there!). Not a massively interesting bag but near other fun stuff in Carlisle!

Actually this is a piece of cake. Forget the fire escape, from the city square simply walk down Castle Street, pass the Cathedral (at left) and Stockland House (at right) and take the first left by the pub down Paternoster Row, at the second lampost with the road sign (white arrow on a blue background) turn around and the mushroom is clear to see. A doddle! See the photos. View? Well the Cathedrals nice!

Eureka ! found on my third attempt on top of Stocklund House which no longer has a OS office but still has the Active Station on the roof, I've tried to gain entry before but cleaning ladies do not have keys to the roof, janitor never there, not possible to see from the rear, even tried to get up cathedral tower but not allowed new health & safety regulations !however if you walk past the bank and classic shop and turn left up an ally you will find a fire escape and from the top you can see it **

On our visit to log this one we found that Ordnance Survey had now moved from this address. Did try to view the trig from a nearby lane but could not see anything.

By cunning use of an adjacent building and some cheapy binoculars I could make out the tripod structure on the roof. A mate was having 'issues' with his Bank prior to us leaving on holiday so, I made the best of an hours free time.

Being late in the evening, no guards available. Its not visible from the street, or a nearby private carpark. The offices look very anonymous, hiding behind a fortified gate at the YMCA (now you have that tune in your head.. Muhahaha!) Looking forward to the customary 3 points from Carlisle next season in our next bid to make the end of season penalty shootouts. (posted in the bad old nonleague days - now in 2008-9 both Hereford United and Carlisle are in the third division)

CARL: Fortifications Its fun to bag at the......
CARL: Its up there somewhere.

Brilliant! Went down to the offices whilst in Carlisle for the football (Carlisle v Lincoln - finished 2-0 to the mighty imps!) anyway, I got inside and then was met by a security guard who agreed to take me up onto the roof. Active stations are amazing :). a tripod with a ball (not a dome) ontop. CARL is scripted on the side but no number anywhere.
