    Post Port War Signal Station - Spurn Point


    Spurn Port War Signal Station is located on Spurn Point, Yorkshire.

    Built during World War I, as a self-contained Naval unit, with officers’ quarters and barracks, this was a station with the important role of monitoring shipping movements. All vessels entering the Humber had to give a pre-arranged signal, pennants in daytime, and lights at night. The signals were changed daily or as frequently as an hour.

    Excellent stuff, Neo. :)
    I just sent you an email to say this is definitely worth posting up, but you beat me to it!
