Comments: Helston is a relay of Redruth. Pre B700 allocations: 54/49/58.

I drove as far as I could up a no through road until the road surface ended and degenerated into a rough and, on this occasion, wet, muddy and slippery track. It was quite a long climb before I was able to turn off onto the site access track itself which is actually quite well maintained. However, I don't think I'd want to take anything much larger than a camera up to this site without the use of a 4WD vehicle!

Helston was originally a BBC landlord site which entered service on the 30th July 1976, with Channel 4 from March 1987.

This site is now included in the Update List for the following reason:
