Visit

Visited this place with a non-member, was great to have some fresh air and the lack of that appealing aroma of pigeon crap which has accompanied me on most of my recent trips,

This was the first explore with a non-member (Thanks for the invite) and a nice relaxing explores with some good laughs and a strange encounter with a guy (nice fella) who is trekking the whole coast 6.600 miles for charity :Not Worthy, he didn't expect anyone to be down there, but after a half an hour chat and a couple of laughs and left him to his explore.

History

RAF Bawdsey was an RAF station situated on the eastern coast in Suffolk, England. Also known as Bawdsey Research Station (BRS), the first Chain Home radar station was built there, characterized by eight tall masts, four for transmitting and four for receiving. When the research group moved to Dundee in September 1939, the radar station was left active under the name RAF Bawdsey. The site later hosted a Bristol Bloodhound surface-to-air missile station until 1990.

Mate you've got some top quality shots here, loving the tunnel, the stairs and especially that switchboard, looks like a more current version of the one at Deepdene, very interesting location too (y)
