Comments: Dentdale is a relay of Caldbeck

Dentdale is an isolated and very attractive outpost of Cumbria which is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.   Surrounded by precipitous hills in just about all directions, it is beyond the reach of almost all broadcast transmitters.   The valley opens up to the north west and as a result a relay was able to be built on high ground which can rebroadcast transmissions from Caldbeck some 45 miles away.

Due to the difficult reception conditions caused by the hilly path to Caldbeck the relay has separate masts for the broadcast and receiving aerials. The broadcast aerials transmit in 2 directions. The main stack covers Dentdale itself from Lea Yeat to the foot of the valley on the outskirts of Sedbergh and a single Yagi provides a service in Deepdale to the south of the transmitter.
