This was the third explore of day for me and The Wombat completing our triathalon. After St Johns and High St. Tunnel, this was a nice end to a successful day.
Here’s a brief history
RAF Stenigot was built as a radar station,near Donington on Bain in Lincolnshire, in the WW2 as part of a defence measure called the Chain Home Radar network. This was an early warning system for air raids from Luftflotte V and Northern parts of Luftflotte II intended for Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester and other Midland Targets.
After WW2, RAF Stenigot continued to play a role in the Chain Home Network until 1959, when it was upgraded to a communications relay point in the ACE High Program. With this for Tropospheric Scatter dishes were added.
In the late 1980’s, Stenigot was decommissioned and the majority of the buildings had been demolished by the mid 1990’s.
