taken 12 years ago, near to West Horrington, Somerset, Great Britain

The Mendip Mast
The Mendip Mast
The Mendip Mast and an old Trig Point. The Plaque on the TP says it's a monument to GPS for some reason, and that it's a National Monument that must not be defaced for fear of death. The TV mast sits at a high point on the Mendips of about 900ft and is itself about 900ft high; that puts the top at 1800ft. It is supported by 12 guys from 6 anchor points arranged 120 degrees apart.
