Former RAF Radio Station, Horse Close Farm
Former RAF Radio Station, Horse Close Farm
This innocuous field was once part of a very secret RAF radio station. During WW2 the Germans were using a form of radio guidance using signals encoded within their Radio Bremmen transmissions. The barn is one of the few remaining features of this radio station which resubmitted Radio Bremen in order to confuse the German navigational system. Even the farmer at Horse Close Farm (the farm in the distance) didn't know what was going on at the station although he did notice he could pick up Radio Bremen better than the Home Service. Perhaps it wasn't so secret, the story goes that Lord Haw-Haw telephoned the farmer and told him that his farm was going to be bombed that night. Which it was.
