Comments: Walsden is a relay of Emley Moor (via Cornholme and Todmorden)

This relay serves most of Walsden village and the parts of Todmorden which the Todmorden relay cannot reach. These are mostly to the south and in the centre of the town.

The first photo shows the local landmark Stoodley Pike and also includes the Todmorden transmitter from which Walsden takes its feed. The resolution of the picture is too low to really make it out but if you look a little to the right of a vertical line drawn between the Pike and the white dot below it you can just about make out a mast shaped thing (!!)

I have no idea why 4 vertical Yagis are deemed necessary to receive a feed from Todmorden which is about 3 miles away and totally without obstruction! (Presumably the trough aerial is on Winter Hill).
