CHAIN HOME LOW STATION CHL15A

DESCRIPTION + /

The site of a Royal Air Force Chain Home Low radar station at Rame Head established by June 1940. It provided early warning of low-flying enemy aircraft approaching the Plymouth area of the south coast during the Second World War. Chain Home Low sites typically comprised two gantries carrying the transmitter and receiver aerial arrays, a transmitter and receiver hut, a standby set house for the reserve power, and a general purposes hut. Defence measures installed at radar stations included Light Anti-Aircraft gun emplacements, pillboxes, road blocks and air raid shelters. Aerial photography from 1992 shows the remnants of a concrete plinth abutting a chapel, which has two possible aerial mounting marks on it.
