Visited with zerocool and BillAnd -

here is some info stolen form WIKI :
wiki said:
RAF Stenigot was a World War 2 radar station in lincolnshire. 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 and Nottingham 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.
i've wanted to see RAF Stenigot for a while now, unfortunately all that is left are the main radar dishes (probably the most interesting part) however it would have been good to see some of the buildings that accompanied the dishes originally. the diggers have been very busy.
