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 and Helmsley. All of Bilsdale's dependent relays have had services restored as of 3 September. A temporary mast has been constructed at Bilsdale Quarry, which came into service on 13 October. This should restore services to 98% of affected households.

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
