Comments: Walsden is a relay of Emley Moor (via Cornholme and Todmorden)

This relay serves most of Walsden village and the parts of Todmorden which the Todmorden relay cannot reach. These are mostly to the south and in the centre of the town.

Walsden was originally an IBA landlord site which entered service on the 7th February 1975, as a relay of Winter Hill, via Todmorden. Site number 103.20. ITV at Todmorden, and consequently Walsden were both changed to relay Yorkshire TV from Emley Moor, via Cornholme, in 1982. The BBC implemented the same change on the 1st May 2009, just prior to DSO. The site number is now 104.64. Both Todmorden and Walsden are in West Yorkshire. Channel 4 was added during July 1985.

The first photo shows the local landmark Stoodley Pike and also includes the Todmorden transmitter from which Walsden takes its feed. The resolution of the picture is too low to really make it out but if you look a little to the right of a vertical line drawn between the Pike and the white dot below it you can just about make out a mast shaped thing (!!)

I have no idea why 4 vertical log periodics and a trough are deemed necessary to receive
a feed from Todmorden which is about 3 miles away and totally without obstruction!
