There is a bewildering array of antennae on the roof of the meteorological station to the west of Camborne. However the active station is apparently sited on a concrete block behind the building. I parked next to the playground at the start of the approach road to the Met Station and walked down the road to the entrance. The surrounding landscape is largely flat farmland with some small ridges on the sky line. The somewhat over grown trig station platform called New Downs at SW 62952 40750 is situated in the far boundary bank of the field to the north east of the Met Station site. Access to the field with the platform can be gained from the field to the east of the Met Station.

Cornwall. It stands in the grounds of the meteorological station, but is hidden by the buildings and cannot be seen from the main gate. We were escorted to the equipment by a very helpful member of staff who gave us a fascinating explanation of the various equipment used nowadays.

It would be easy to be confused by the array of mushroom-shaped domes at this meteorological station. We were lucky that an attentive member of staff spotted us creeping in the gates to get a closer look - he came over to ask what we were doing and then took us directly to the active station, which is cone-shaped.
