Google Earth Plug-in: Winter Hill television transmitter

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


At 456 metres (1498 feet) above sea level, Winter Hill is the highest point of the area to the west of the Pennines, a line of hills, known as the backbone of England, running roughly north - south between Lancashire and Yorkshire. The highest point within Bolton Borough is on Smithills Moor, south of the top of Winter Hill, at 1467 feet above sea level. Winter Hill television transmitter was built in 1965 and is one of the most important in the UK as it serves much of Lancashire including the conurbations of Liverpool and Manchester.
The mast is located on the high ground 5 miles NW of Bolton and overlooks the “Cheshire plain”, thus giving it a coverage area stretching down as far as Crewe, Stoke and even Shrewsbury.
