Field Notes

Swingate Transmitting Station

Three lattice towers with a height of 111 metres, which were built for Chain Home radar before World War II. The FM transmitting antennas are attached to the middle tower, with microwave link dishes and mobile telephone antennas being attached variously across all three towers. It is the only radar tower from the Battle of Britain in WWII still in use today. Known locally as the three sisters.
