After a walk up to Coldberry End this was easily spotted on the way back down the valley.

Look like this is on someone's garage - felt a bit out of place here.

On old water authority building/ garage/workshop. The reported position NY85174 39387 is approx 100m west of current position, possibly moved, will check maps later. Postscript - on checking maps the reported position is an empty field as far as I can ascertain. Previous logs are of the same location, the garage.

On garage next to a couple of houses. No-one around on my visit so could get up close and have a good look at it.

Usual mushroom dome. Located within grounds owned by Northumbrian Water. Had to explain what we were looking at to a very perplexed waterboard employee who said that we must be very sad people! Told him that more sad people might follow. Another employee asked if we were terrorists!!
