In architecture, a cupola is a relatively small, most often dome-like, structure on top of a building. Originally in the early 17th century it was designed to provide a lookout and later to admit light and air, it usually crowns a larger roof or dome.

A lightning rod (US, AUS, CDA) or lightning conductor (UK) is a metal rod mounted on a structure and intended to protect the structure from a lightning strike. If lightning hits the structure, it will preferentially strike the rod and be conducted to ground through a wire, instead of passing through the structure, where it could start a fire or cause electrocution. Lightning rods are also called finials, air terminals or strike termination devices. In Medieval Times it was rumoured to stop witches landing on the rooftop.
The Broadmead cap is aptly named after the style of Chimney Cap used in the Broadmead area of greater Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
