|This is a very fine high CCI site near St Illtyd's Church. Unusually this site uses trough aerials for both receiving and transmitting. The lower horizontally polarised troughs point at Wenvoe.|
Abertillery was originally a BBC Landlord site which entered service on 30-Nov-1973 to serve 14,800 people.
S4C was available from the launch on 1-Nov-1982.

|Near this site I found one of the many former cable head ends, now looking rather forlorn with a small empty building and lots of loose cables, but many of the original bowtie antennae can still be seen. There is another such site near Ebbw Vale.|
