Comments: Lancaster is a TV relay of Winter Hill (line fed)

Originally an ITA landlord site, BBC 1 & 2 entered service in 1970. ITV was added on 26th June 1972 and Channel 4 from December 1983. The UHF cylinder contains a ESE (105°) facing cardioid. DTT was added early in 1999. DSO was on 4th November and 2nd December 2009.

Radio Lancashire entered service on 13th June 1984.

DAB service dates are: North-West, 27th September 2001. Closed 24th September 2013; Digital One, 28th September 2001; BBC, 14th April 2004.

Peter Bigwood comments: "I've quite taken a fancy to this site... probably the sunshine. It's a landmark to M6 users and unusual in that all three of each sets of guys are attached to the one same anchor block."
