Chain Home radar station, Rye
Chain Home radar station, Rye
Derelict in 1983. The building is the transmitter block. The camera is looking along the line of the four 350 foot high metal transmitting towers, only the concrete bases of which remain. They are aligned at about 48 degrees, and would have transmitted a beam at rightangles to that, across the Channel towards Amiens. The brick line in the foreground was probably a cable duct, although the signal to the transmitting aerials would have been carried above ground. See also LinkExternal link
