On the east side there looks to be a road going up to the radio masts. Anyone know how far you can drive up that road please.


#2

As far as the locked gate right at the bottom - unless you are an engineer working there.

I’ve often wondered myself about the road that arrives at the top of Bardon Hill. Where does that start from, and is it accessible?


#3

I never found the start of the road at Bardon Hill, always ment to walk down the road but never have. The good news is I am about to start working for a company that owns a mast and other kit on Bardon along with several other stations at SOTA hills… I see a request for a key in the pipeline and an access map.

I’ve only done this one once but:-
I believe the access road starts at SK458118 but it crosses a quarry road SK461128 leading to a heavy plant repair yard SK466130 after Brook Farm which has locked gates either side.

I’d just like to say “The Programme does not accept operation from or in the immediate vicinity of motor vehicles.”

:wink:

Sorry, I’ll get my coat!

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Unlike Nicolas Anelka against my beloved Liverpool, this was an open goal I couldn’t miss. I promise to behave for the rest of the week.

I’ve driven up that road once (it’s rather steep) - about 4 years ago, before I really new anything about SOTA. The reason for doing so was that one of the Radio Groups that I’m involved with has equipment located on the site (as it also does close to G/WB-003). I’ve not yet re-visited either of them, but one day I will !

Oh Blow, I must delete my activation of Great Orme, there must have been at least 50 cars in the immediate vicinity. Never mind, I am sure I will find a day when there are no cars up there I hate to break the rules… :wink:

I also propose the banning of the word thong, I am being left with a mental scar and I can’t cope…
