    Got bored one evening.

    History.

    The acoustic mirrors, known colloquially as 'listening ears', at Denge are located between Greatstone-on-Sea and Lydd airfield, on the banks of a now disused gravel pit. The mirrors were built in the late 1920s and early 1930s as an experimental early warning system for incoming aircraft, developed by Dr William Sansome Tucker. Several were built along the south and east coasts, but the complex at Denge is the best preserved.

    Money Shots.

    Nice to see again, as i understand it these Mirrors couldn"t tell the difference between a Nazi Plane or anyones else"s so were of limited use and soon replaced by Radar....luckily for us. (There"s some still surviving near Spurn Point FYI )

    I didn"t fancy the "Jump" when i was there solo & didn"t have my Speedos ;)

    The amusing thing is that the development of these was continued well after the decision to go with radar. The problem was that the radar development was so secret that they could not tell the mirror chaps, so a blind alley was followed up for some time!
