Bradford grew round the junction of three valleys. Most people living on the hillsides can pick up a good signal from Emley Moor - in fact for many, the transmitter is clearly visible rising above the horizon. Most of those further down receive analogue and digital from Idle Hill to the North, but for those at the bottom of the east valley (Fairweather Green, Clayton, Leventhorp and Thornton), reception of Idle is made impossible by Manningham Hill. For them, the small Bradford West transmitter, which entered service in April 1988 and lies atop Bradford Royal Infirmary provides a fill-in of channels 1-4. Bradford West is just one of many aerials on top of this building, which also houses a multitude of Mobile phone and other transmitters, one of which can be seen to the right in the second picture.
