Comments: Chalford is a TV relay of Mendip and a network FM relay of Wenvoe

Chalford serves a deep valley to the east of Stroud called Golden Valley, at the bottom of which flows the River Frome. Coverage includes Chalford itself and Brimscombe.

For UHF the receive trough aerial points at Mendip, and broadcast is via the UHF panels at the top of the mast. Two point north west towards Brimscombe, and four point north east towards Chalford.

For network FM, there is a single vertical log periodic pointing towards Wenvoe, and transmissions are from two vertical dipole arrays mounted on the northern leg of the mast. Again, one array points north east, with the other facing north west.

Originally an IBA landlord site, UHF TV transmissions commenced on the 6th May 1977, with Channel 4 added during August 1986. DSO was on 24th March and 7th April 2010.
