Comments: Wensleydale is a relay of Holme Moss

October 2007

Wensleydale is one of those stations which, you would have thought, would have made it to the gallery long before now, but here it is as part of an Oct-2007 update.

The FM array is one of the few Lindenbladts in the UK.

Originally built by the BBC on two 17m wooden poles, 405-line BBC 1, on VHF channel 1, and BBC FM radio entered service in September 1968. 405-line BBC 1 closed on 4th January 1983.

Radio 1 was added on 10th September 1993, with re-engineering for mixed polarisation completed in May 1994. The wooden poles were replaced by this 20m square tower in February 2001.




The remains of one the original wooden poles.
