Comments: Walsden South is a TV relay of Emley Moor (via Cornholme, Todmorden and Walsden) and a network FM relay of Holme Moss (via Cornholme)

This site provides television and FM signals to the valley of the Walsden Brook between Todmorden and Littleborough on the West Yorkshire / Greater Manchester boundary.

Originally an IBA landlord site, TV transmissions commenced in August 1979, with Channel 4 from June 1987.


This photo shows the mast, including the receiving aerials which although appearing
to point in the same direction actually receive their feeds from 2 different sites -
UHF from Walsden and FM from Cornholme both of which are roughly north of the site.


UHF TV at the top. A four tier UHF cardioid. The folded dipole on the right transmits FM radio.

The year was 1990. Radio 1 was added in 1994.
