A ride up to this iconic landmark is well worth the trip. The views are wonderful, and often in summer there is an ice cream van in the layby, where you have to park. This mast perhaps doesn't mean much to people who aren;t from...More

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...More
