    Visited on a sunny saturday with non-member RoFox. I think it's the first report from that place on 28DL, but have seen some old ones on the other forums. Located just off the road after few minutes walking distance through the forest.

    history: During World War II, five radar stations were constructed to give early warning of approaching enemy aircraft around the Thames Estuary area. Dunkirk and Swingate were two of the five, and constituted part of the Chain Home system. Certainly the CHS played a crucial role in the Battle of Britain as Luftwaffe bomber formations could be detected even before they had crossed the coast of France. [undergroundkent.co.uk]

    Detailed description is on subterranea britannica if anyone is interested.
