The highest free-standing structure in the country and I can see it from my front window (when the leaves fall). Travelling home from the South it's always a thrill to catch sight of it. And we can get a TV picture with a safety pin in the aerial socket-beat that.

Very impressive but would be much better if we could go up the mast. We parked in the carpark and looked up, that put the size into perspective.

We were out on a geocaching 17 mile Tour round the Mast by car and stopped off in the car park to visit the information board for some figures we needed for the hunt!! We can see this from Barnsley and it was good to see it close up.

This monument can be seen for miles around and is recognised by people who do not live in the area one of my sons is lucky enough to see it quite close up from his bedroom

We didn't get to enter the transmitting station grounds as such (only the car park) but even so, it was well worth a stop to view the station close up. It has long been a feature dominating the Huddersfield skyline so it was very interesting to examine the structure.

I always see this from the motorway in the distance and think it looks elegantly designed. Today my 3 year old boy spotted it too so we decided to turn off the motorway to take a look. We drove to the lay by and found it to be almost ethereal at 1pm with the sun directly behind and us in... More

This is an amazing building with scenic views! Very accessible to the public! You can get up close and see the mast very close! This a must see for Yorkshire

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.
