Delph transmitter which is a dependent of Winter Hill (via Saddleworth). The mast is located on a hill overlooking the village which is shadowed from both Winter Hill and the Saddleworth relay by surrounding precipitous hills. Delph is a very attractive Pennine village which has featured in a number of TV & film productions.

The first photo shows the whole mast including a rather odd horizontal bar - presumably work in progress to add paging aerials or similar? The other two photos show the television and mobile phone transmitting aerials in more detail. On one of them you can see the receiving aerial right at the bottom. This points through a convenient gap in the hills at Saddleworth which is a couple of miles to the south.

Originally an IBA landlord site, Delph entered service on 5th June 1981, with Channel 4 from August 1986. DSO was on 4th November and 2nd December 2009.
