Yes, I get your point Bill, those gates are absolutely hideous.


More than a hint of truth there. The building is definitely "follyesque"
and not particularly lovely.

That's terrible. Where is the gnome sitting on a giant toadstool, which

Or on the left side, below wall level. But it's surely a faked photo?


Doesn't look it to me

If it's not, what is it's purpose?


From the heavy heatsink on the LNB, I'd say it was a data up and
downlink, not just for TV reception, reservoir telemetry presumably.

No it is not faked.

Shocking.

How did they get the council to give permission for that?

It's even worse than this, nearby,

That's even worse than the one in Knaresborough at the junction of Bond End
