Parked up at the Poole Harbour viewpoint. I was going to follow the footpath which leads from near the viewpoint straight up to the top of the down, but said footpath lead through a field of cows who seemed very interested in me, so I walked down the road and up the Godlingston Hill way instead.

There are good views from the top over Poole, Bournemouth, and the Isle of Wight. The chimney at Fawley power station was also visible (demolished not long afterwards).

The Heart FM antennas. I assume the X is to create some kind of null to the south?

DAB antennas

The Purbeck Coast transmit antenna is on the left.

The 3 element yagi on the right appears to be pointing eastwards. I wonder if it's a reserve Rx for Heart from another transmitter?

A zoom in of the Purbeck Coast antenna, which points southwards towards Swanage.
