Easily found with Douglas near to the end of a fine benchmarking walk filling in our last morning in the Scillies.

Extensive ground and building works at this side of the air terminal (works are being done round the clock, due for completion later 2014) so access not so easy at present. Some people after me were escorted away by the contractors, but they didn't seem to notice me, hence close-up piccys. Standard white Leica dome on rusting tripod legs.

Visited on the same trip as my visit to the Hugh Town trig point. This active station is in a compound in front of the Airport's terminal building, with other equipment. The compound is formed of a low chain link fence and is surrounded by grass. There is no difficulty in walking right up to the compound fence, almost within touching distance of the station. The station itself is formed of a small white dome (bearing the Leica trademark), mounted on a triangular frame. In good condition.

In a compound at the airport, easily accesible to photograph, you can get pretty much right up to it. Great view from here eve if the trig is dull.
