    Default Spittal Chain Home Low radar station


    I was passing this site today on my way to another explore and thought it would be rude not to take a quick look. There isn't a lot to the site just a generator building and the radar set house but some nice features still remain. This was designated M32 Spittal and it is EDOBID: e25322



    Buried generator building







    Shutters from the set house windows





    Generator bed



    Set house



















    shutters in place







    Well thanks for looking

    Cheers Jon
