This was another solo visit a while back, nice sunny day, some time to kill and a nice shiny new set of ND grads to play with.

History has been well and truly covered here, so I'll steal it from Wikipedia and keep it brief.

RAF Stenigot was a World War II radar station situated near Donington on Bain, Lincolnshire, England.

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.
