Skelton Transmitter Site

Just spent the last week in Cumbria and the Lake District on holiday,  for part of the time we were camped near the village of Skelton around 5 miles north west of Penrith. Skelton is famous for it’s huge transmitter site. The primary function is shortwave broadcasting, but it also supposed to be the site of a VLF array used for communication with submarines.

While out finding some geocaches I managed to take a few photos of the impressive antenna arrays.
