    Visited with Ricklus.

    Were both new on here, but we have explored quite a few places, which will be on here soon.

    This is my first visit to Stenigot. What an amazing place, the size of the dishes are unreal along with the steepness. I attempted to climb to the top of one... but failed.
    We also had a look around the buildings, there's not much left inside though.

    History

    RAF Stenigot was a World War 2 radar station situated near Donington on Bain, Lincolnshire, England.

    It was part of the Chain Home radar network, intended to provide long range early warning for raids from Luftflotte V and the northern elements of Luftflotte II along the approaches to Sheffield and Nottingham and the central midlands.

    After World War II, the site was retained as part of the Chain Home network. In 1959 it was upgraded to a communications relay site as part of the ACE High programme, which involved adding four tropospheric scatter dishes.

    The site was decommissioned in the late 1980s and was mostly demolished by 1996.


    Anyway here are the pics, enjoy.

    A bit of photoshop in a few, i couldn't help myself :D
