I must have driven past that loads of times, but managed not to see it somehow. Probably concentrating on avoiding HGVs and whatnot. Definitely stop next time I'm off up to the Lakes.

I disagree Drew- I think it's a thing of beauty, I love it, relic of another time. It cheers me up every time I pass it.
