Comments: Gunnislake is a relay of Caradon Hill. Pre B700 allocations: 46/43/50.

Gunnislake itself is just on the Cornwall side of the River Tamar but the relay itself is on the opposite side of the river valley and is thus in Devon!

Originally an IBA landlord site which entered service on 18th June 1976, Gunnislake holds the distinction of being the final relay to have Channel 4 added to it in December 1987.

DSO was on 12th August and 9th September 2009.

This pictures appears in the IBA Handbook 1988 with the following caption:

The television relay station at Gunnislake in Cornwall where the installation of Channel 4
transmitting equipment (in December 1987) marks the completion of a major five-year
engineering project to give Channel 4 and S4C the same coverage as for ITV.
