    Myself and Groundcrew Syru had a little detour past here after an afternoon out on Exmoor.

    Elworthy Barrows mast was originally built for the Orange Network in the 1990's, and stands at about 200ft/61 metres.
    Nowadays, it carries High-speed broadband to areas of Exmoor (that would otherwise still be enjoying dial-up) for Surf Telecoms, and also carries Airwave communications transmitters.
    Forgot to take a flag up with me, dammit...
