TV mast on Winter Hill
The impressive 310 metre high TV mast erected in 1966 replacing an earlier lower mast. It is of tubular design with a diameter of 2.75 metres to facilitate maintenance and is secured against wind damage by fifteen cable attached to the mast at five different levels. It serves a population of 6.3 million people in north-west England and north Wales.

In the background, the buildings associated with the mast, and four of the seven smaller aerial masts which crown the hill.
