Its sat on a tile on a flagstone
On it, so not very tall then. Well, my guess is that you can if you like, but it's unlikely to get hit, and if it did what odds that it'd jump across to something else rather than continue to earth down the pole ? Or is it pole damage that concerns you ? Unsure I'd bother, but if you'd rather be safe than sorry.
Aluminium is going to be it's own lightning conductor; I'd have thought.

It is damage to the pole I'm worried about, I don't want any melting or burning.
