Redundant radio station at Trusthorpe
I am grateful to Robert Wade for alerting me to the fact this was in fact the BT Coastal Station Humber Radio which closed on 30th June 2000.
Humber Radio commenced operations on 7th December 1927 as a new station in new buildings at Trusthorpe near Mablethorpe, equipped with the latest communications technology, taking over from the former Grimsby Radio and continuing that station's callsign of GKZ.

Ironically part of the building was on fire at the time! The fire services were just about to arrive.
