Passed it on way to do Fairfield Horseshoe (+ Stone Arthur) ... lots of Wainwrights to bag (9) but no trigs on the circuit (assuming there's not a ring-trig hidden under a cairn, Cross Fell style). Darkenss falling by the time we came back through Ambleside.

Kept a look out for this while in a traffic queue. Quite easy to spot from the road. I am glad it was erected on the police station and not the Bridge House.

Easily spotted on roof of Police Station. Looks like a Choke Ring Antenna (like Giggleswick TP7465).
