This is a great structure to go and see, you can't actually go inside, however there is parking at the side of the mast and is Grade II Listed building. There is a lot of history around the mast available on the website including photos of when it blew down. A very well known landmark in the area.

It is a great sight, as you would expect. Sadly the viewing point - a layby- is in desperate need of a make-over!

Live near the mast and cycle up and beyond it most weekends, Can see from my landing window and is the last view I have before going to bed. You always know you are home coming up the motorway when you see the mast. Never been up the mast and not sure if you can but the structure is a... More

Not sure if you can tour the mast but the height is very impressive and can be seen from miles and miles around.

Even standing inside the base is an experience - it is vast. I was lucky enough to have been up to the top of the tower in 1990 and the views - all 360 degrees - are stupendous (once the clouds have lifted....). I noticed that the Venetian blinds were swaying and mentioned that there must be a draught -... More

Now retired but formerly an official with the union BECTU, who represent staff at Arqiva, operators of Emley Moor, I can advise that I have on three occasions, been to the observation gallery near the top of the mast at around 850 feet. The view is... More

I used to live near the mast and always loved to go up here our own 'Eiffel Tower' it's a good place to head if for a good dog walk. Be sure to visit the Three Acres for lunch or dinner.
