Comments: Woodcombe is a relay of Mendip. Pre B700 allocations: 59/50/55.

The origin of the first two photos is unknown. Mervyn reports on his visit as follows: "Woodcombe is a suburb of Minehead. I walked up the lane into a farmyard before I realised the mast was the other side of the hedge. The pole stands on its own in the middle of a field, there is no fencing or anything, the receiving aerial is barely a couple of metres agl, you can virtually reach up and touch it. The equipment cabin seemed to be some distance away on the other side of the hedge in the farm yard but I didn't venture there."

Woodcombe was originally a BBC landlord site which entered service on 26-Apr-1985.
