The above photo is taken from a BBC Handbook and shows The Wrekin in the mid-70s, shortly after it opened, devoid of the usual mobile phone and utilities aerial we are familiar with today. Mark Carver took this photo of the site a little more recently in September 1988. The Band II aerials are evident but the DTT aerials were not yet installed.
