SUTTON COLDFIELD

The Beginning Of The End for the Temporary Mast - June 2013

Sutton Coldfield has been home to two masts for several years now, the second being built to allow the first to be extended and for the new digital arrays (main and reserve) to be installed. Now it looks like the second mast is starting to be dismantled.

The shots were taken while I was passing the area, and with only my camera phone in hand. It is the 41MP Nokia 808 Pureview, however, so there is plenty of resolution to look into!

The temporary mast has had its TV Panels removed and it is in the process of being deconstructed. Interestingly the FM/DAB array is still on the mast.


Here, cropped in from the previous image, is the crane, ready to remove more mast sections.
