Kilvey Hill is the NGW site which serves Swansea and the surrounding area.

The first shot, below, shows the hill and mast from the Swansea Marina.

The next three photos were taken by David Baker in 1994.

He says:

I don't know if these will be of any interest to you. These are pictures I took of the Kilvey Hill transmitters back in August 1994, before the addition of DTT, DAB, Radio Wales, Real Radio and various utilities.

Classic FM on 101.3MHz had only recently been added to the site at this time, I remember it bleeding all over reception of the newly introduced 'Galaxy 101' from Mendip, which was very weak around the Neath / Swansea area anyway.

James Hamilton has some more up-to-date photos for us, taken in 2005, showing the new tower and several new services present at the site. In the foreground of his first photo we also see the remains of the old windmill which once stood at the site.
