Disapponting view from NE corner of ASDA car park, looks like a better view from the bank immediately N of the Hydrographic Office - if it's still accessible.

Knew the Asda so when I knew I would be in Taunton for the day on a 500 mile round trip from Pontefract I thought this was the best option. And it's not bad, the funny pipe from the photo on here is the best give away. There is also a little white mushroom antenna near to it on the same roof, best visible from the bottom of the Asda car park today. Wish I knew more about what it did, but yes it is there. I love this area hope to be back to do a pillar soon.

Somerset. This is a replacement for the active station that used to be at the Ordnance Survey Offices in the town. It is on the roof of one of the main buildings in the Hydrographic Offices. After a lot of attempts we finally got into a position to see it from the top of a hill/embankment above the dual carriageway. Standing on a block on the highpoint outside the perimeter fence, we could make out the usual Leica dome on its pole. Later we discovered you could also see it from the main entrance of Asda!

We spent ages trying to find this new active station at Taunton. We were delighted when we eventually caught a glimpse of it after climbing up a wet grassy bank behind the Hydrographic Offices...but we were later a bit cheesed off to see it again, with no effort at all, when we came out of the nearby Asda.

Active station from grassy bank behind the Hydrographic Offices.

A glimpse of a round topped mushroom antenna can be seen on the roof of the Hydrographic Offices in the east of the town either from part of the edge of the nearby Asda car park or from near the junction of the dual carriageway, close to the Mercedes Dealership.
