Comments: Skipton is a relay of Emley Moor (via Keighley)

This site which is located a few miles to the west of Skipton itself at East Marton provides television signals to quite a large area known as Craven which straddles the Yorkshire/Lancashire border. This area is on the fringe of both Winter Hill and Emley Moor, neither of which adequately serve the area due to the hilly terrain.

The first 2 pictures show the mast from 2 different angles. As you can see this is not a well-populated mast - in addition to the television broadcast aerials and two trough receiving aerials the mast has only a couple of microwave links, one mobile phone aerial, an aerial for the police airwave service and what looks like a band II VHF dipole. There are, however no band II transmissions from Skipton, as the area gets good FM reception from either Barnoldswick or Keighley.

The third and fourth pictures show the aerials in more detail, the UHF troughs point towards Keighley which is about a dozen miles to the south east.
