Bromsgrove is a high power TV relay serving Bromsgrove itself, Droitwich, Ombersley and parts of south west Birmingham.

Perched on a hill by the M5/M42 junction, the site is in a picturesque rural location commanding impressive views of the surrounding south midlands.

There are two RX trough antennas pointing at Sutton Coldfield for TV RBL. The station carries DTT services and is also a DAB site for the BBC, Digital One and MXR Midlands.

A brand new DAB array has recently been installed underneath the UHF aerial cylinder, and appears to be similar to the orange coloured antennas now present at Madingley.
