Three of the four large masts at Rugby Radio Station. These have red lights on at night and can be seen for miles. This was taken from next to the main gate, the only publicly accessible place in this square. The other big mast is in SP5575.

A visitor adds:
The Rugby Radio Station initiated the first transatlantic telephone service on January 7, 1927. The receiving site was in Cupar, Scotland and the North American transmitting station was located at "Radio Central" in Rocky Point, New York. The Rugby Radio Station also initiated the first transatlantic telephone service to use shortwave radio in 1929. LinkExternal link
