Oliver's Mount is a 1 kW tv relay and a 0.25 kW BBC VHF network relay of Holme Moss. It also relays BBC Radio North Yorkshire at 0.25 kW. It is also the main 0.625 kW transmitter for ILR Yorkshire Coast Radio.

Below the UHF TV antenna are GSM aerials and under these are the BBC Radio VHF mixed polarised antenna panels. Immediately below these is the single ILR mixed polarised aerial. Further down can be seen two UHF TV RBR trough antennas, one must be pointing towards Belmont, the other seems to be facing Emley Moor. A little further down are the RBR aerials for BBC Radio.

The BBC national radio VHF relay was moved here from the original Scarborough VHF (ITA and BBC) television relay site in 1983, the frequencies remained the same but the power was increased from 0.025kW horizontal to 0.25kW mixed.

BBC Radio York also launched from here and Acklam Wold in 1983. Around this time the BBC were beginning to re-engineer their transmitter network for mixed polarization. The BBC use the familiar VHF radio panels, whereas the ILR service is provided by a single SIRA mixed polarized aerial but using higher power than the other services.

Olivers Mount is home to a motorcycle racing circuit, there are three races a year here. Just over the road from the mast there is also a war memorial to our fallen heroes of the First, Second and Korean Wars. From here there are spectacular views across Scarborough.
