Development work for new mast

Last year plans were submitted to Kirklees Council (Huddersfield) for the construction of a temporary mast to be built to the south of the present concrete tower. Purpose of the temporary mast is to allow services to continue while the antenna and part the antenna supporting structure at the top of the tower is replaced.

Living within 5 miles of the site I will try and make a weekly visit to the site to take pictures and update this page.

Viewing area layby at the site entrance is blocked for all vehicles except those for the contractor. Parking is very limited around the area as several individuals found out while I was at the site.

Very busy July and August for myself working on a large project which has me doing extended hours at work, so unable to visit Emley. Thankfully most of the effort at Emley has been ground based site preparation such as finishing off the site access, fencing with gates to the construction site.

Following pictures taken west of the tower near a Yorkshire Water covered reservoir.
The planning application for the temporary mast has the stay wires running towards the south side of the reservoir. Pictures show a gravel road which runs to a location behind the tower, where the temporary mast will be located.
