Comments: Burbage is a relay of Winter Hill (via Buxton)

In the southwest part of Buxton is a small relay serving (probably) the area on the hill directly on the side of the hill screened from Buxton itself. I couldn't see any aerials pointing to it, but from the photo it seems likely. On Holmfield is a small pathway between houses that leads to Buxton Country Park. The transmitter is located on a wooden pole in a corner of the field nearest the road behind some trees.

Burbage was originally a BBC landlord site which entered service in December 1987.
