DAB added - May 2017

The update list called for photos on the new BBC DAB antennas at 40 metres, which entered service on 12th May 2014. Around the same time BBC DAB was added to nearby Ladder Hill.

Birch Vale covers the area between Glossop and Ladder Hill, and serves Hayfield, Birch Vale itself and parts of New Mills.
