Couldn't see much of this 309.48 metres (1,015.4 ft) tall structure due to low and dense cloud. It's tethering points are impressive, all 15 of them. Constructed 1966, operated by Arqiva.

Seeing the mast from the M61 doesn't do justice to it. Up close, it's 1015.4 feet feels impressively high

Probably visible for a league or more, the building sports a memorial plaque dedicated to an Isle of Man plane crash in 1958 with the 'Scotchman's Post' nearby memorialising a barbarous murder from the 1830's.. additional interest point for each.

Winter Hill TV Mast ..mighty tall, mighty windy.
Winter Hill Air Disaster "Somewhere around the corner, All is well."
Scotchmans Post ..Barbarous murder.
