Emley Moor Transmitters

Emley Moor Mast and Termporary Transmitter

Emley Moor Mast and Temporary Transmitters pencil drawing 2019

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.

New year, new technique. This is oil paint and turpentine, using the turps like water. The result is not the same as a painting in watercolour, but the liquid nature of the medium makes the physical act of painting similar.
