An old facility on the side of a volcanic island. What's the island called?

By Jimmy Nail, I assume you mean James Michael Aloysius Bradford =)) ....
He used to live just round the corner from us when he was a lad. Him and his mates played football on a bit of spare ground near our house and their football regularly landed in me dad's garden. He would jump over the fence to retrieve the ball and trample on the plants. Things came to a head when he trampled all over me dad's leeks. His dad worked with my dad in Swan Hunters so a word was had and little Jimmy was grounded - leek growing was a serious business in them parts.
Ah yes, leek growing! For several years, I lodged at a pub in the lovely village of Ovingham and I got to know the landlord and the locals quite well. One morning after returning from a trip overseas, I asked the landlord how things had been. "Well, for the first time in my life (he'd owned the pub for at least 15 years), I had to call the police on Sunday night." He explained that they'd held the regular leek-judging competition at the pub, but one of the competitors had taken umbrage with the fact that he hadn't been given first prize. People began to take sides and a fight ensued. Apparently both the combatants were pensioners, so your point is well proven 4ma! :)) .

It's a very barren island. Are we in the Indian Ocean?

Winter draws on down here, in fact there's a definite 'nip' in the air at present...

Yes ian - a Japanese island.

I told our local Indian takeaway he should change his name to The Ring of Fire after one particularly strong one. He told me that we westerners should develop some intestinal fortitude.

This one seems to have stalled, which maybe isn't surprising! The buildings are the remains of a met station on the active volcanic Japanese island of Torishima due south of Tokyo. https://www.google.co.nz/maps/place/Tor ... 40.3017515

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tori-shima_(Izu_Islands)

The eminent ornithologist Lance Tickell, who specialised in the study of seabirds, especially albatrosses, was dropped on Torishima in April 1973 from HMS Brighton with a party of four and a week later they were picked up by us in Antrim Flight after studying the resident birds.

OH declared as I haven't anything new at the moment.

Here's something. Shouldn't last long.

The structure is named after product that was sold here.

A market place in the Cotswolds.

A wool market?

Barnard Castle butter market.

I also thought Cotswolds and a Corn Exchange as in Witney.
