Emley tower

New Vac

We rented a car again today to go to Marjories for some mail. Got the train at 9.20 and from Leeds Station walked to the Hertz shop.

Off we went - each time we've gone to Marjories we've passed this rather high communications tower -

Today I managed to get a picture (last time we passed it was shrouded in mist and only a very small portion of the bottom was showing)

It is Emley Moor Transmitting Station. A 329m high concrete job which was opened in January, 1971 replacing a 385m mast which collapsed in 1969 after a strong snow storm.

After our visit we chuffed off to Huddersfield to purchase a new Dyson stick vac

Then we came back via Haworth - disappointing as it was after 3.30pm by the time we got there and it was a bit dismal and the majority of the shops were closed. So we didn't even get out of the car, just a drive through town and then made our way back to Skipton.
