SHX This is a site owned by BT and is a major communications mast. It actually carries links to TV transmission sites around Norfolk, although it doesn't transmit any TV signals itself. It does however transmit Broadland on 102.4MHz., that is the array at the very top of the mast, just under that, difficult to see, there are two directional antennas, they transmit the regional station Vibe FM on 106.1 as a fill-in for Norwich.

Incidentally, if you look at the right hand side of the first photo you will see what looks like a TV aerial on a rotator, that is in fact the receiving point for Broadland's radio car!

These last two photos show the adjoining mast which is a preserved war time Chain Home Radar mast owned and still used by the MOD, the others having rusted away. According to a BT rigger it still has the bullet holes from an air raid and there is a memorial on site to the RAF radar personnel killed at the time.
