I've checked this whole area on OS Landranger #104 map (which ends a little west of Warley moor) and the AA West Yorkshire road atlas (which covers
the whole area). There's nothing mentioned, and Warley moor is empty apart from the odd reservoir.
Funnily enough, I was telling my wife about this earlier and she said it was strange because she used to see what she assumed were RAF jets (as in
fighter type aircraft) fly over the area regularly when she was out in the car. She never mentioned it before! She also said she'd noticed a few
fenced-off buildings which looked out of place because there were no signs on any of them as to what they are. The local water authority who owns many
buildings around the reservoirs always places signs outside.
To anyone outside the UK, this may sound a little stupid I guess. But to us, seeing a cluster of buildings with fencing around in the middle of miles
of empty moorland and with no sign of ownership is very unusual (Fylingdales www.fylingdales.ukf.net...
springs to mind as an
example!). I'm not talking about farm buildings or barns either. Many of these have antenna arrays or satellite dishes attached. What type of
business/organisation would need such equipment? They aren't local TV or radio relay stations (these are on another local hill, clearly marked on
maps) and there are no mobile phone masts anywhere around, so who else?
A drive out in the landrover is planned for next week. Should be interesting!!
