Comments: Knucklas is a relay of Ridge Hill (via Garth Hill)

The Knucklas transmitting station is located half way up the side of the Teme valley in Shropshire, close to the Welsh border. It is about 2 miles to the northwest of the picturesque town of Knighton near a small hamlet known as Skyborry Green and the access road is very steep and very twisty. It was also, as seems normal whenever I get my camera out this year for mb21, bucketing it down!

The target area is the small village of Knucklas itself, and a few other households to the south-southeast where the reception of the Garth Hill Tx is not possible. (Due to them being in the shadow of... erm... Garth Hill!!). It's a fairly standard mast with one horizontal log on the parent station, Garth Hill, and three others providing transmissions to the target area. Knucklas entered service in January 1987.

The vertically polarsied transmit aerials at the top. A single log periodic pointing roughly south-southeast, and two pointing roughly west-southwest towards the village of Knucklas. A single horizontal log is used to receive Garth Hill.

The relay's target audience is down there somewhere, apparently!
