Comments: Whittingslow is a relay of Sutton Coldfield. Pre-B700 allocations: 60/57/53.

Gary commented: "The site itself is in the village of Whittingslow. Coming off the A49, the B4370 catches you by surprise (it looks like it's a petrol station). Heading down the B4370 you'll see a sign for Whittingslow. Follow this and you'll eventually reach a sharp right hand bend. About 2 minutes down this single lane track and you reach the site. Pretty much any vehicle (including the little Toyota Auris that work saw fit to send me out in today) can get there."

Whittingslow was originally a BBC landlord site which entered service on 18th May 1979 from a 17m wooden pole. Channel 4 was added in June 1987. The wooden pole was replaced with this square tower in June 2000.

Editor's note: not broadcast related but is this designed to give a figure-of-eight pattern, perhaps?
