    Went to check out the famous radar dishes a couple of weeks back. Access, as you'd expect, was easy and the only downer was the relentless wind, it was bloody crap. But if you can put up with that then these are great to see up close, they are way bigger than they appear in photos and the other buildings on site are pretty cool too.



    Some history lift from ye ol wiki

    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 dishes are now privately owned.

    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.

    Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn.

    It does take great maturity to understand that the opinion we are arguing for is merely the hypothesis we favor, necessarily imperfect, probably transitory, which only very limited minds can declare to be a certainty or a truth.
