    Carnaby - Only just got round to reading these pages.
    264 Squadron was just the other side of the valley at Colerne during 1944 so there may have been the odd detachment.

    Good thinking Ray, and a belated welcome to AiX.

    Just discovered there's nothing on this thread relating to the intended ROTOR constructions on this site. Visited these long before I realised what they were:

    The rotor radar site at Charmy Down was only partially constructed & never completed. Hence, there is hardly any record of it's existence.

    Is there anything left of this rotor station, even though it wasn't finished?

    Hi another number,
    There are five rotor radar housings,some plinths & what looks like a generator room.
    I have some pictures somewhere, I will dig them out & post them on here very soon.

    Here are a few pictures that I took of the rotor radar station back in 2008. I apologize for the lack of quality as my camera back then was a basic point & shoot.

    Interesting photos John, was there part of the structure underground?
