WWII Radar Station


Recommended Posts

These pictures are of a Radar station built on the edge of the cliffs at Stonebarrow, Charmouth, Dorset. During the war a radar station was built too near to the edge of the cliffs, against the advice of locals. Sure enough its weight caused the cliff to give way and the building and three lorries went down 50 feet on a platform of land that slid down but stayed nearly upright. The smaller brick building was the Generator house and that slid down later. On the top of the cliff and about 30ft. from the edge can still be seen 4 or 5 slit trenches. The picture of the brick hut bases are taken about 400yds.to the rear of the cliff edge.
