Comments: Trawden is a relay of Winter Hill (via Pendle Forest)

Trawden sits at the bottom of the valley of Trawden Brook which causes the area to be shielded from both Winter Hill and the Pendle Forest relay which covers much of this area of Lancashire. The site is on farmland to the south of the village and transmits its signals in a predominately northern direction additionally covering Laneshaw Bridge and some parts of Colne.

Originally an IBA landlord site, Trawden entered service on the 31st January 1975, with Channel 4 from May 1986. DSO was on the 4th November and 2nd December 2009.

There is both a 4 Yagi array and a vertically polarised trough to receive the feed from Pendle Forest. These can be seen just beneath and to the right of the transmission aerials.
