Got up fairly close as we were at Kelso Showground for the annual Borders Potato Day. Access to the showground itself was free on this day - payment was only required to access the main building. Some of these active stations are not really very exciting are they?

Wouldn't have realised what it was if I hadn't seen it here. Passed by on Borders Abbeys Way. No position logged as within showgrounds.

Roxburghshire. This a fairly recent addition to the OS database and is on the roof of the main building in the showground, across the River Tweed from the town. It is the Leica mushroom dome type, but, interestingly, on a much shorter pole than usual.
