Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there. Unfortunately missed out on the Bolt.

This FB, a 1GL mark and the cupola being an intersected triangulation station makes this building good value! See http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=4287335584282&l=887288b116 for photo of the FB.
