The largest county in the United Kingdom, Yorkshire is renowned for its unspoilt countryside, its historical past and its fierce traditions. Often referred to as “God’s Own County”, visitors to Yorkshire can enjoy the vast Yorkshire Moors, the rolling Pennine Hills and the rugged heritage coastal areas at Whitby, Scarborough and Filey.
To residents and visitors alike, Yorkshire is also renowned for many well-known landmarks, including a number of telecommunications transmission masts, perched high on the hill tops which can be seen for miles around.
As a telecommunications provider based in West Yorkshire, we’d like to share some information on these well-known landmarks with you…
Emley Moor Mast
The most famous transmission station in Yorkshire is Emley Moor Mast. Situated 1 mile west of the small village of Emley in Kirklees, West Yorkshire, the Grade II listed building is the tallest freestanding structure in the UK, the 7th tallest in the EU and the 25th tallest in the world.
