Visited with Dubchester and Dr.Howser


RAF S was a World War 2 radar station.....
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 andNottingham and the central midlands.
After World War II, 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.

This ones a real cool mooch its on private land but never the less very relaxed ......just to say the 14-24 lens makes the dishes look bigger than they are ......on with the photos
