    Yesterday my son and I braved driving rain and wind to visit Killylane radio control station in the hills overlooking Lough Foyle, Co Derry. During WW2 it was used to communicate with ships and aircraft using the western approaches to the UK. It's an isolated site so there is no vandalism and apart from the removal of the radio masts and equipment it has been left to decay naturally since 1945. Here are some pics.
    The main entrance and guard post.

    That's all folks. A very atmospheric site due to the untouched nature. It looks very unmilitary, more like a school but the telltale signs are there like the guard post and the rifle racks. A very historic site that due to the beautiful view over Lough Foyle, it's days must be numbered.
