From my house you could see the lights on Rugby Radio Masts. You could see them from M1 and M6, they were like a welcome home beacon. But guess what . They demolished them. So sad :cry: :cry:

About 19 miles according to the internet Joe. I took a photo on my mobile but can't really make them out. To be fair they were just a red blur on the horizon :-)
