Comments: Lark Stoke is a TV relay of Sutton Coldfield (line fed)
 

The broadcast mast is only 13.5m high with a UHF cardioid antenna poking out the top radiating the 4 analogue services and 4 of the 6 digital multiplexes.

The VHF antennas are below that and the DTT antenna for Mux C&D is further below at around 8.5m from the ground.

This superb aerial shot of the station shows a temporary tower in place at the site which broadcast the FM services while DAB elements were added to the main VHF antennas.

When Peter Bigwood visited the site during the Autumn of 2002 he commented: No change at the site that I can see but I didn't spot a separate aerial for Mux C&D as suggested. 

(Apparently it's the grey shrouded cross logs below the VHF antenna, close to the off-air receiving trough antenna. The analogue antenna is a Band IV cardiod so the other muxes could share. Mux C&D were so out of band, they required their own antenna.)

Now DAB aerials are added too...
