Emley Moor is surrounded by beautiful countryside with lovely views. Take the time to have a good drive around and keeping the mast in view, you will enjoy a peaceful environment. There are also some good paths for those who enjoy a good walk.

It's the one to lookout for when you're driving up the M1 towards Huddersfield from the south (J38). The tower is in Emley. You can see it for miles as it's an enormous tall TV mast with which is lit up at night to stop planes crashing into it. I have driven past the tower itself and there isn't much... More

Called to look at this amazing example of engineering on our way back from Castle Hill fort Huddersfield. We have passed it many times over the years due to going for a Sunday lunch at a pub called the Three Acres in Emley - Its sheer size is outstanding engineering due to the weight - I can remember during my...

I'd seen the Emley Moor Transmitting Tower several times driving down the M1 from Leeds, but didn't know what it was, so decided on a cross country diversion to investigate. Great drive up hill and down dale to get there (only 10 minutes from the M1). Not much to see when you get there, and I didn't stay long as... More

Emley Moor is an iconic skyscraper in Yorkshire. A TV transmitting tower rather than an office block but it truly scrapes the sky and is visible for miles around. It is elegantly similar to the CN tower but it towers above Yorkshire not Canada. There are plenty of other landmarks and viewpoints to visit in the area so is good... More

If this falls down it will probably land on our house so we live close by. Good spot to visit on a clear day to take in the views which can be extensive.

Emley Moor Mast has some amazing views over West Yorkshire ans a cozy pub nearby, however, this attraction doesn't have much more then that to offer.

Emily moor is our local tv mast, although it is a tall concrete structure it is well loved by the local people, we see it as we return from journeys and know we are home. It stands on the high ground and can be seen from miles around. On special occasions it has been laser lit and does look spectacular... More
