Comments: Ribblesdale is a relay of Winter Hill

This site must be one of the most picturesque in the country being in an especially attractive part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The site is about half a mile south of the village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale and brings television to the northernmost part of the Ribble Valley roughly from Helwith Bridge to head of the valley appropriately enough at Ribblehead which is a popular tourist spot for walkers and Settle-to-Carlisle Railway enthusiasts alike. This area is otherwise very much on the fringe of the Winter Hill and Lancaster transmitters - as a result despite low power Ribblesdale covers quite a wide area.

The first two photos demonstrate the beauty of the mast's location - it is situated in a farmer's field surrounded by trees and overlooked by Pen-y-ghent - one of the Three Peaks of the Yorkshire Dales.

I struggled a bit to get detailed photos of the mast as the gates to the field were firmly tethered, but pictures 03 & 04 show 4 Yagis just beneath the distinctly lop-sided transmitting aerial. The Yagis point down the valley at Winter Hill which is around 40 miles away.
