Comments: Kewstoke is a relay of Mendip

At the southern end of picturesque Sand Bay in Somerset, which is renowned for its countless holiday homes and camp sites, lies the Kewstoke relay. Kewstoke village lies directly to the north of Weston-Super-Mare, in the shadow of Worlebury Hill, and thus is screened from direct reception of Mendip.

Kewstoke is one of several Mendip relays along the English side of the Bristol Channel. It was built to bring English TV to an area the was that otherwise well served by the transmissions from Wenvoe, entering service on the 8th August 1983 with a non-standard UHF channel allocation of 30/56/34/67. As all four of these channels was to be used by the interim DTT transmission from Wenvoe, Kewstoke was changed to a standard UHF group of 40/46/43/50 in the mid 1990's to avoid CCI problems.
