A field station for atmospheric electricity observations at Lanehead in the north Pennines is described, and results from July 1967 to July 1969 are presented. The diurnal variations for potential gradient, averaged over that time, show the universal 24-hr cycle with maximum at 19 GMT associated with ocean measurements, and the course of the other parameters is discussed. The station promises to be of value for studying both global and local effects.
