HANNINGTON

Photos by John Hocknell, Gazette Newspapers Page last updated: 2011-04-22

Hannington - Under Construction in 1969

Commentary accompanying the photo in the newspaper:

"Cool as a cucumber, working at nearly 500 feet above the ground, is Mr. Ian Campbell of Lawrence Close, Popley, near Basingstoke. He is one of a team of construction workers who have built a huge new aerial mast at Hannington, near Kingsclere. At the end of this month the mast will be transmitting BBC2 programmes - and eventually BBC1 and ITA - on ultra-high frequency. Gazette photographer John Hocknell went to the top of the mast to get this photograph."
