Piltons ski jump still needs more work

Great photo, that pruned tree on the right looks like ET emerging from the earth, without his head. Then again I’m on co-codamol for a bloody painful toothache.😊

The old webcam used to break regularly and needed a BBC tech to make the trip to Somerset, so was off for months at a time.  This one has been more reliable until recently.  And what with there being nothing much going on, festival wise, it's not been a priority to fix. 

I don't think anything is being concealed. 

Yeah,

I've seen the current incarnation of the web cam in person. It's a stand alone unit in the corner of a working farm yard, well removed from the nearest building.

It's entirely likely that there's issues either keeping it powered or keeping it online, and that neither are within the remit or skillset of the people on site.

It's not attached to a building? 

What's it on?

It's pretty much a box with a pole sticking out the top, and the actual camera on top of the pole.

There may be wires running to/from it for power and or data, I didn't get close enough to look, but either way the nearest building is probably a good 20 metres away

GIven it went down about 7-8pm one evening its entirely likely to be a fault rather than anything planned.  As you say its pretty isolated in the yard.  Maybe they're planning on upgrading it/replacing it.  Would love them to stick in one from LobsterTV but I guess BBC will always dictate.

Strange! 

I thought it would be attached to a barn or something.

Until the return of the webcam, I can tell you that nothing much has happened in the last 3 days. Hence no new photos. They are still making the wooden stage for Spike. The accessibility ramp is complete. There has been a lot of tree clearing either side of the railway track. Apart from that Arcrania still stands alone. The pyramid still has no top but the staging is sat nearby.

Not sure why they have put camo netting over Putin's bunker ( aka the pile of water cubes. ).

I think it's a fan account.

Pretty sure it’s someone from this thread tbh.
