Site of Poling Chain Home Radar Station
Land commandeered in 1938 was given over to the military to construct a number of tall pylons as part of the defence of Britain during World War Two. They were located either side of the cottage, now known as Radar Cottage, in the distance. The towers were very conspicuous and were often a target of the Luftwaffe on raids with the cottage still bearing the scars of machine gun bullets and other debris. The pylons remained in place during the early years of the Cold War before they were closed and removed in 1958. Viewed from The Driftway, a bridleway that links Lyminster with Poling.
