The site is on Firestone Hill where there are no less than 5 masts within about 100m! Why can't all the mobile operators just share?! Anyway. Ofcom's sitefinder and what the board at the site gate say is there don't match either so what's actually going on here mobile network wise is anyones guess, but I digress. The site in question here is named Belper so I assume it therefore serves Belper, and was probably a small wooden pole at one time, although no evidence of this could be seen. (It has always been a 30m tower ED). Receive is one simple log, transmit is a set of bowties.

The site is surrounded by trees making photographing it difficult, but I got the shots I needed!

Belper entered service in September 1981, with Channel 4 from May 1985. DSO was on the 17th and 31st August 2011.
