High Frequency Direction Finding (HF/DF) tower base, Shoreswood
High Frequency Direction Finding (HF/DF) tower base, Shoreswood
All that remains of this WWII structure is the octagonal brick enclosure which protected a three-storey wooden tower. Together with two more HF/DF towers in the area, comparison of signals received enabled the positions of aircraft to be pinpointed. RAF Winfield, Milfield and Charterhall are all within a relatively short distance of the site.
