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.

Lived in view of emley moor mast all my life and you just take it for granted that its there. Nothing to do apart from see the spectacular height of the structure with views and usually an ice cream van around. Down the hill is the 3 acres pub which is lovely (ive left a reveiw for it). Im sure... More

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

Browsing Trip Advisor, I noted that the Emley Tower is down as "an attraction". 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.

Emley Moor Transmitter Tower is very local to me. It is very popular as something to go and view for people who are out cycling, out on a Sundy afternoon drive, bikers etc.Often an icecream cart can be found in the lay-by on a weekend. There is little to 'do' here, merely observe the huge concrete structure that is similar... More
