Met young farmer and older lady while walking past farm buildings. They were happy for me to go to active station--but were concerned cattle (young bulls) in field might be a problem. Lady advised me to stay near fence in case quick exit required. Turned out my biggest challenge was not cattle but the big expanses of deep mud determined to suck the wellies off me. Active station looks fine!

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and obviously in good condition. About as close as I have got to an AS.

Standard Leica transmitter, tripod mounted on the ground inside a met office enclosure. Friendly farmer allowed us to drive up to the compound. Large gap under the fence allowed easy access into the compound. Bonus flush bracket on the farm building spotted also.

Fab to find a Stephenson Screen in the enclosure, I avoided the field with the Bull on heat (servicing his Lady Cows) and my brother spotted the FlushBracket on the Farmhouse below... WTG Bro' :-)

Drumalbin ..another classic Leica\'shroom.

Leica mushroom dome on ground-mounted tripod. Situated in the Met Office enclosure with other instruments of science! Not much else you can say really. Accidentally parked beside a NPFB I hadn't known about at the farm which I was inordinately pleased about!

Easy access along track. Nice tripod, if you like that sort of thing.

This looks like a brand new active station. I have never seen the usual mushroom dome (Leica SR530) looking so bright and shiny. It was situated in a weather station enclosure, which was exceptionally well maintained, with neatly mown grass even in January!

Lanarkshire. We parked alongside a flush bracket at Drumalbin Farm and walked up the track to the weather station enclosure on the hill. This active station is in immaculate condition and, interestingly, is the first active station I have seen that stands on its own tripod on the ground.
