Mast on Norwood Edge
Mast on Norwood Edge
This is a large metal structure, not unlike the top half of the Eiffel Tower. Its purpose is unknown to me. It stands high above the Washburn Valley, and can be seen from miles around. It is visible from Tunnel How Hill in Leeds, from the North York Moor escarpment and from Greenhow.
I believe this is the old BT microwave tower, named for the nearby Hunter's Stones.
