Comments: Ladder Hill is a relay of Winter Hill

The Ladder Hill TV relay in Western Derbyshire serving this rural area including Whaley Bridge and the town of Chapel-en-le-Frith. This is a 1kW relay of Winter Hill.

I took the pictures last September and you will see two masts in picture 1; the recent BT Airwave installation seems to have been too much to add to the main structure, which is well used, so has had to be placed alongside. It had its own generator running constantly, pumping out foul diesel fumes. (I assume that this was a fairly temporary measure until electricity could be cabled in, and that by now it is running without the generator).

The site is in a fine location - the trig. point you see in the second photo is at 405m AOD. There are good views to the NW towards Manchester and I would imagine the site provides a very good signal in that direction for all its services.
