Could you please confirm the geographical location of the BBC Essex transmitter in Bakers Wood.

This Web page gives the coordinates of the transmitter as: 51?46'0" N; 0?24'15" E, which places the transmitter North of Chelmsford. Your map also shows the location of the transmitter as being North of Chelmsford.

The Ofcom report of Local Radio Stations:

(….pdf )

gives the location of the same transmitter as: " TL 660 034", which converts to the coordinates: 51?42?19? N; 0?24? 06 E?, which locates the transmitter in Bakers Wood near Writtle, that is South of Chelmsford.

Could you please advise; is the BBC Essex transmitter, operating on 765 kHz, located North of Chelmsford, in the Chignall area, or is it located South of Chelmsford, in the Writtle area?

Many thanks and kind regards,
