BILSDALE MAST MAJOR FIRE
On Tuesday 10 August 2021 a major fire broke out in one of the buildings at the base of the mast at the Bilsdale Transmitting Station. The fire spread up the feeder cables and put all services from the mast including television, national and local radio for over 1 million people off-air. This also affected all of Bilsdale's dependent relays.

Temporary services have now been rigged at alternate sites, specifically at Eston Nab, Arncliffe Wood, Loftus, Thirsk, Kirkbymoorside, Ripon, Leyburn, Masham, Helmsley and Northallerton. All of Bilsdale's dependent relays have had services restored as of 3 September. A new tower has been constructed adjacent to the old mast base, restoring services to over 98% of the population. This will provide services on a temporary basis until constrction of the new full height mast has been completed in early 2023.

For more information on the incident and its knock-on effects click here. A new dedicated website has been launched to publicise progress on the reconstruction effort: www.bilsdalemast.co.uk
