Comments: Over Biddulph is a relay of Winter Hill

The most southerly of the Winter Hill dependents, Over Biddulph is a directional, low power relay serving a small community shielded by the local terrain. Located in Staffordshire (just), it serves an area which is technically within the Central Television franchise area, overlapped by Fenton.

Originally built by the BBC, Over Biddulph entered service on the 5th October 1979, with Channel 4 from April 1986. It used a non-standard wideband channel allocation of UHF 34/67/30/48. BBC 2 was changed from
ch 67 to 57 on the 26th September 2000 as a consequence of the interim DTT multiplex coverage equalisation at Winter Hill.

Expanding the picture of the service buildings, the radio telescope at Jodrell Bank is just visible on the horizon.
