Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is a view into the panopticon, a strange feature which has been situated on the hill top above Wycoller, on a day which was quite misty, with occasional breaks in the clouds.

It is a dome shaped sculpture, with holes around it, intended to give views from every angle around the countryside and, as far as I know, quite unique. Locally, it is called The Mighty Atom!

As you can see, we have had a lot of rain!!! The sculpture allows rain in, but there is no facility to allow the rain out! Consequently, we have a mini bathing pool! I have never seen it so wet before!!

I will add an Internet link here which shows the exterior of the panopticon and explains a lot about it. It also gives grid references and a video.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)
