Tyne and Wear HER(12090): Whitley Bay, Post Office Remote Transmitting Station - Details
Whitley Bay, Post Office Remote Transmitting Station
The transmission station and masts aesthetically spoil the rural character of the St. Mary's Island Conservation Area. However the site has strategic importance given that it is one of three coastal sites in the UK which are part of an international network for shipping.
