Haslingden is a relay of Winter Hill for TV, and of Holme Moss for FM radio.

The sloping wire MW aerial is for Asian Sound. The oddities are the two UHF log periodics trained on Winter Hill, as well as the trough aerials.

Originally an ITA landlord site, BBC 1 & 2 entered service in August 1971, with ITV from 25th August 1972 and Channel 4 from June 1985. The UHF cylinder contains a south facing cardioid. DSO was on 4th November and 2nd December 2009.

BBC national FM radio entered service on 7th July 1989, with Radio 1 from 10th March 1994. Asian Sound Radio launched on 3rd June 1996. Rossendale Radio launched on 1st May 2010 on 104.7 MHz. Closed 5th March 2012.

OK, maybe two oddities at Haslingen. There's a boat abandoned here!
