    Some background on this location:

    ACE HIGH is a tropospheric scatter/microwave link system which dates back to 1956.

    The Ace High station at, Coldblow was located alongside an existing WW2 communications station on Coldblow Hill. The most prominent feature was two pairs of parabolic dish antenna, 60 feet in diameter supported on seven lattice steel girder legs. The transmitters, receivers and power supplies were located in a single storey brick building between the pairs of dishes. With the demise of the Ace High network the Coldblow station closed in the early 1980's was sold by auction in September 1986.

    Visited with UrbanKitty & TheSarge.

    Having arrived at the front gates, we tried the phone number for the gatekeeper as past explorers have had success asking to simply look around. When we didnt get any reply we though sod it and went ahead anyway! Didnt spend long here as we had a few other locations to view, but it was cool for a small explore!
