Lisa and me are fairly confident we saw this from the car park to the rear of the car park.

If the AS is on a low pole at centre of roof, as the GR indicates, it will not be seen from ground level. Unless there has been definitve info from OS on its demise, then I believe there is a strong possibility that this AS is present and correct after all. ***Post-visit note 9 Nov. It's confirmed the AS is present and correct and was transmitting on 8 Nov 16. Now just needs a visual by someone!

No sign. Was last here on the sad occasion if the search for April Jones. We never did get used - the announcement that specialist teams only were needed resulted in lots of tears even from the police officers present.

Manager took me to first floor to inspect OS cabinets, etc. Gubbins on roof may be the aerial.

This was one of those grim days that Mid Wales has a habit of throwing up. Rain and mist well below the 100m level, putting any plans of heading into the hills well and truly to bed. I was therefore just feeding on scraps by logging this destroyed active station site.

Montgomeryshire. This is on the current OS database and has been for some time. It formerly had the station code MACH but the location was effectively the same. It is supposed to be sited on the leisure centre but we could not see it, either there or on any building nearby. It is supposed to be the usual leica mushroom dome on a pole.
