Waltham on the Wolds Transmitter
Waltham on the Wolds Transmitter
Built during 1966 for completion early in 1967 this transmitter is a 290 metre high guyed steel tube mast.. Unfortunately, the mast collapsed shortly before it was due to enter service and had to be rebuilt, delaying its opening until 1968. You always know when you're nearing home after a long journey as the aircraft warning lights can be seen for miles around at night.
