    Happened to drive past this mast while cruising about lower East Anglia. As I was there and access was nearly a walk in, would've been rude not to!

    The mast is 300ft tall, and is currently owned by Essex Police- Essex Police in turn are currently renting it to EE mobile networks.
    It is in a corner of the site of the old High Garrett POW camp, occupied by the US military after the war as a microwave radio station, when presumably this mast was built.

    As you can see from this historical pic taken in 1963, it originally had no centre ladder

    It's situated right next to a busy 'A' road, with houses directly opposite, a crematorium next door. Therefore, I had to dose myself up with a large portion of "Fuck It" before I started to climb... Was also a particularly windy afternoon!

    Anyway, Pics:-

    Had a flag tucked in my waistband and cable ties in my pocket, but this was as high as I went due to some very new looking wiring leading to aerials on top, and a sudden headache...

    Very nice indeed. Good effort, it's hard to just go for it when you know you're in plain sight.
