Emley Moor Mast and Termporary Transmitter

Repairs are currently being undertaken at Emley Moor transmitting station near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, and there is a temporary mast alongside the 1971 concrete construction.

This is the tallest freestanding structure in the UK (1,084ft). Also a Grade II listed building.

The antennas broadcast digital radio and TV across the North of England – reaching Hull, Leeds, Sheffield and York, and even Manchester, across the Pennines.

It takes 7 minutes in the lift to get to the top – I hope to take that ride one day.
