  • Description

    "The Caldbeck transmitting station is a broadcasting and telecommunications facility, situated close to the village of Caldbeck. It is owned and operated by Arqiva. It includes a 337-metre-high (1,106 ft) guyed steel lattice mast, which is the third highest structure in the United Kingdom. The transmission antennas surmounting the structure are contained within a fibreglass cylinder. The current mast [[5588024]] was erected in 2007 and for a few years there were two [[522675]] before the original was demolished being incompatibile with the new digital broadcasting equipment."
