Warminster Town (WCR)

I was in Warminster (in 2017) and took some photos of the transmitting antenna of WCR (http://www.wcrfm.org.uk).
Known to Ofcom as "Warminster Town" it transmits to Warminster and surrounding villages on 105.5, 0.05kw mixed. ST873451 is the grid reference.
You can't get close to the transmitter as it's on the roof of the Athenaeum but I managed to get a few pics of it as near as it is possible to get. You can see a square panel antenna there too which is presumably the link back to their studio as you can see a similar antenna back at the studio building. I believe the studio is a converted toilet block next to the Civic Centre! Station history here:
