Tall Pointy Things...

...that you see from the M1 are probably the Emley Moor TV transmitter tower. Apparently the tallest free-standing concrete structure in Western Europe, it's 275m high - and an impressive piece of architecture.

There's also an interesting story of what happened to the original tower...

I can just about see it if I stand at the fire exit on a clear day.

Correction - I can see it from my office window. For proof I will take a photo with my lovely, lovely Clié right now and see if I can figure out a way to post it from work today.

Actually, the resolution of my lovely, lovely Clié isn't up to the job - the mast comes out as a couple of light grey pixels against a background of slightly lighter grey pixels.

Yes, I'm bored, since you ask.

Strange how I felt compelled to read the whole darn site. Just a big pointy thing, and yet I couldnt help but be interested.
