Lovely Seat in the Yorkshire Dales has, er, a rather lovely (stone) seat on the summit. I'm not at home at the moment so cannot post a photo of it.

I'll have a really close look next time I'm up there :lol:

The painting is getting a bit faded now, but makes a nice change from graffiti

There's a Top Secret Microwave Radar Station on top of Brown Carrick Hill in Ayrshire. Not going to stay secret very long, plonking it on top of a hill like that. They should've buried it or something.
