Comments: Todmorden is a TV relay of Emley Moor (via Cornholme) and a network FM relay of Holme Moss (via Cornholme)

The Todmorden transmitter in upper Calderdale, West Yorkshire. The site is a couple of miles or so to the east of the town at a location which allows for direct reception of Winter Hill but the site now takes its tv feeds from Emley Moor via the Cornholme relay which is a few miles to the north west. The vertically polarised aerials receiving this feed can be seen, just above the mobile phone aerials.

The transmittter serves quite a large area of Calderdale between Todmorden and Hebden Bridge though much of Todmorden itself is at least as well covered by the Walsden relay. The FM feed seems to be from Cornholme too - a ridge of hills to the south lies between Holme Moss and the mast presumably making direct reception too difficult.

I visited on a day which, without doubt, could be described as 'clagged in'! Half-an-hour earlier, you could barely see the mast from a few feet away.
