    Default St Cyrus Chain Home Radar Station


    After reading about and visiting Dougla swood Radar station, the family, yep the family thought we could spent the day Bunker hunting. With St Cyrus bing a few mile up the road, after a spot of shopping in montrose and then at Steptoes junk yard ( great place) we eventually found it
    Located on farm ground, I did ask to visit. The woman told me that the Transmitter/ Reciever building was all that remaind, the rest being demolished after the war, the main block was left for the farmer to raise chickens in.
    This station had a huge range all the way down to berwick, which you can see on a clear day.
    Another gentleman informed me of a nearby coastal village with winch gear and ariel ropeways for getting fish up the cliff. So that s next on my to do list.

    Main Transmitter/Reciever block, pretty much all that remains of the station

    Hmmm...very interesting. This must have been a WWII only site (its not on any of the post war CHL or CHEL records). There might be a bit more around and about this location , as suggested by this rchms record for it

    A quick shufti at the aerial photos on this record and I think you can make out the bases for the mast points, which makes me think " I wonder what might be further down that hill?"
