MONUMENT NO. 1413234

DESCRIPTION + /

The location of the domestic site for Royal Air Force Portland radar station. It was built in the early 1950s as part of the Rotor programme to modernise the United Kingdom's radar defences and accommodated station personnel. The radar station could have had up to 250 members of staff and was in use until 1958. A stand-by set house for reserve power for the station was co-located at the domestic site. Aerial photography from 1968 shows the domestic buildings in good condition. They were substantially built buildings and are likely to be used as civillian accommodation.
