Parking the scruffy lay-by, then through a scruffy gate and along a scruffy footpath, Active station is in good condition and can be easily seen from the footpath the runs a few meters away.

I used to work in that office, a good few years ago, but have no legit reason to visit nowadays so followed the (well signposted) Nene Way as per MCL - the PRoW passes within 20m of the AS.

This one is situated on the roof of the main building of the Broadholme Water Treatment Works near Wellingborough in Northamptonshire. You can get to this one by parking near the traffic lights (off the road please!) and then walking along the Nene Way public footpath which follows the line of the main driveway to the sewage works. Although the compound is protected by big motorised gates by the roadside, and more gates by the actual compound, (and probably minefields and machine-gun nests every ten yards..) the puplic footpath passes right by the main inner gate with no barrier to keep pedestrians out. So although you can't drive into the compound without seventeen security gates needing to be opened after vicious interrogation, you can walk right in and nobody stops you! On the return journey, you walk across the riverside meadow and can see a beautiful single-track stone bridge (with passing places for pedestrians to nip into). This carries the main road although modern traffic flow has to be regulated by those pesky traffic lights I mentioned earlier. Although designed for the days of horse and cart, I wouldn't fancy myself hiding in one of those cubbyholes while a ten ton artic thundered past!
