Comments: St. Anthony-in-Roseland is a relay of Redruth

July 2008, updated September 2015

We're indebted to Nick for supplying photos of the last Cornish broadcast tx site to be photographed for the gallery. Nick's photos were taken on 13-Jul-2008, one of the few sunny days we had that summer!

Neil White attempted to visit in September 2015 but commented: "This is the site that got away. When we where visiting the nearby National Trust site we spotted the relay but we could not work out how to access the site. The obvious route is labelled as a private drive". Neil's photo, however, does confirm little has changed except for the arrival of a telemetry dish

The pole at St. Anthony is on the left - Redruth is just visible to the right on the far horizon

Neil comments: "taken from the road to National Trust site using a 300mm telephoto"

Comparing with Nick's photos we can see no obvious change except for the addition of the dish and perhaps a repaint of the cabin. The other enclosure, on the left, would seem to be for a completely unrelated purpose since there are no other antennas or supporting structures


Maybe we can extract a little more detail? The odd thing here is the "telephone wire" attached below the receive antenna - it was also present in Nick's photos. Since it's highly unusual to have such a thing at a small relay maybe it's actually connected with the enclosure on the left and it's just that the pole looked like a convenient way to fit the line?

Please let us know if the photographs for this site need updating or improved detail.
