    I know Rooks only just posted this but it was her that put me on to it and i was by coincidence doing something else not far from there so popped in to have a goose.

    Some more background info:

    RAF Stenigot was a World War 2 radar station and part of the Chain Home radar network, intended to provide long range early warning for raids. The Chain Home system was fairly primitive, since in order to be battle-ready it had been rushed into production.

    It was in many ways technically inferior to German radar developments, but the better German technology proved to be a disadvantage. The Chain Home stations were relatively simple to construct and comprehensive coverage was available by the start of the Battle of Britain. By contrast, the Germans had only commissioned around 8 of their Freya stations by this time. In spite of the simplicity of the Chain Home technology, the system had a surprising amount of functionality.
