Comments: Wooburn is a relay of Crystal Palace

April 2006

Wooburn is a medium power relay serving Bourne End, Flackwell Heath, Wooburn Green and Wooburn itself, just south of High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire.

The tower is located on a ridge to the east of the service area, in a nature reserve called Farm Wood.

Transmissions are from two arrays of four UHF panels. One array is pointing roughly north, the other roughly west. The RX antenna is a single log periodic on Crystal Palace, which was rather difficult to spot in amongst all the mobile telephony festooned on the tower.

Originally a BBC landlord site, TV channels 1 - 3 entered service on 24th December 1976, with Channel 4 from March 1985. DSO 4th and 18th April 2012.














OK... where is the RX aerial?




Ah! There it is!




Looking north west towards Wooburn and Flackwell Heath. The M40 goes along the edge of the hillside in the distance.
