Report - Chesham radio tower

    I live in Chesham, a medium-sized town situated in the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire, UK. We have a half-hourly rail connection to London from our own Tube/ Underground station (it's not actually under the ground).

    Because of the hilly terrain, it was necessary for a mast to be installed in the 60s for the growing demand from a developing town.

    Now housing around 30,000 people, Chesham has reached near-full capacity for the amount of housing there is.

    This is the town's radio, television and mobile phone tower. I climbed it and took pictures. The mast is still in use. It is 150 feet high. I have actually climbed this twice, but the first time I didn't take decent pictures (I had a point and shoot at the time).

    Unfortunately, being a mast, there's not much to take pictures of on the way up and I was concentrating more on not falling and dying so here comes a not so picture heavy thread.

    And finally a shot down the mast with flash (before I had a tripod unfortunately) from the top of the mast. Well I say the top, but it's the safest bit as high up as you can get before there are no railings.
