    As Chairman of the Board of Trustees, it is with regret that I have to inform you of the immediate closure of the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The decision has been forced on us following our annual fire inspection when some issues concerning fire escapes, which have previously been seen as acceptable risks, have now caused the Defence Fire Risk Management Authority to serve an enforcement notice on the Museum Manager through OC RRH Neatishead. I, my fellow Trustees and the Manager regret having to make this decision and sincerely hope that it is only temporary. Certainly the Manager and I will be actively engaging with the RAF and MOD authorities to find a way forward. I will advise you further in due course.

    Just seen a piece on the news about the fire escape problems, a figure of 50K for remedial works was mentioned!

    RAF Air Defence Radar Museum to Reopen
    The RAF Air Defence Radar Museum at Neatishead, near Horning is to reopen in April 2011, after improvements to the fire escapes. The museum was closed in August after MoD fire officers carried out an inspection.

    The museum has announced a fund raising drive to buy the museum building from the MOD.

    REF:
    I like the photos. Was posted to RAF neatishead in 1970 after tour on Bloodhound. Went off to Elliot at boreham wood and Marconi at Chelmsford to learn how the system worked and then back to Neatishead as engineering supervisor in SLEWC (Standby local early warning and control) where we gradually took over from Marconi. Left in late 73 as Ch Tech and took voluntary redundancy.
