Visited with thestig and daddy stig.

After a pretty eventful week off, and plans going down the scrap heap along with my car no thanks to a BIG ASS lorry..... daddy stig kindly took us to the site for a mooch.

RAF Stenigot was a World War II 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 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.

On with the pics.
