Comments:

There are three sites known as Barnstaple, one for VHF/FM radio, one for MF/AM radio and one for UHF television. This is the MF station.

Barnstaple was a two programme site from 1978 up until the early 1990s when it provided North Devon with both Radio 1 and Radio 4 services. 

This tuning unit and mast forms a "reserve aerial". If the main aerial fails, this can be manually plugged up inside the TX building.

Finally, here is the nearby VHF tower as seen from the Barnstaple MF site:
