Local landmark

Strictly speaking a tower, not a mast. Quite an impressive structure whatever way you view it. Whichever way you view it it looks the same :-). Was lucky enough to be able to... read more

As you can neither go up to the top of the mast nor even walk up to it this isn't an attraction you can properly visit and I wouldn't go out of my way to come here. If you are in the area however, feel free to give in to the natural urge to drive towards it. You can park... More

We had a look at this from the Adjacent Three Acres Pub. It's a great thing to look at, you can't go to the top except by arrangement. On a dry summers day, it's a nice drive out.

Strictly speaking a tower, not a mast. Quite an impressive structure whatever way you view it. Whichever way you view it it looks the same :-). Was lucky enough to be able to get a trip up it to the top a few years back. Incredible views from the top. The lift is slow - but very reliable, so the... More

We are lucky to have a clear view of the mast from our house in Shelley. Sadly I am old enough to remember the old mast falling down and being taken by my parents to watch the present one being built. Have flown over it several times on the British Airways flight from Heathrow to Leeds Bradford. Always know you're... More

Recently myself and a colleague were invite to the top of the mast, to celebrate the fundraising efforts of some of the Arquiva staff who had raised money for Wheatfields Hospice by climbing the 3 peaks. I was nervous, but it was unbelievable when we reached the top. After a noisy 8 minute lift journey (2 staff, 2 fundraisers and... More

Viewed from the car park at the nearby Thorncliffe Farm Shop 10 mins walk away. I travelled here on the bus from Huddersfield Bus Station and this is the closest buses get. A shame you can't travel up it but there is a website with panoramic views taken from the observation/equipment housing level. There didn't seem to be any footpaths... More

Another stunning landmark around the Huddersfield area. It's a shame they don't do trips to the top.

Despite the questionable merit in feeding television to the masses, Emley Moor's premier transmitting station is worthy of a visit for all mast enthusiasts. We arrived on a Saturday evening and had the place to ourselves aside from only three bescootered teenage boys who we understand have a fixation with this type of monument. Establishing dominance over other tall thin... More

We thought you could walk around it or something, but it's just a very tall tower and that's it. No footpath, but just a high gate to keep you off the premises. Hmm.

Wow Emley Moor Mast is amazing, you can see it miles away, it's so near to the lovely town Holmfirth where Last of the Summer Wine was filmed, why not have a lovely day out visiting Emley Moor and the surrounding country side, there's some quaint little pubs too where you can eat.
