    Hi i've been visiting a few sites for a while but this is my first report. Visited Raf Stenigot with a couple of friends in some of the worst weather known to man, i'm sure you all know the history but here we go, RAF Stenigot was a Second World War radar station situated at Stenigot, near Donington on Bain, Lincolnshire.
    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 the Second World War, 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 program, which involved adding four tropospheric scatter dishes.
    The site was decommissioned in the late 1980s and was mostly demolished by 1996.
    The radar tower is a Grade II listed structure and is now used by the RAF Aerial Erector School for selection tests for possible recruits.
    There is a Memorial at the top to a former RAF Aerial Erector.
    Apart from the weather really enjoyed the explore them dishes are awsome and i wasnt sure if there were any buildings left but there is and we were straight in no probs, right on with the pics....
