Appleby Hill - or No Man's Heath microwave transmission tower is a landmark for miles around, standing as it does on a hill overlooking the meeting point of four counties. Erected as part of the 1950's microwave network, it found itself made virtually redundant by fibre optic technology - I believe the system is now mainly used as backhaul for the mobile phone networks. I know very little about it, but it appears to be relaying signals from Copt Oak to Sutton Coldfield.
