This broken-down fence is - I think - a
small surviving part of the WW2 outer
defence perimeter around the Bawdsey
radar research base, the first of its kind
and the start of what became known as
the Chain Home link of radar
establishments around the south and east
coasts of Britain in the 1940s - our first
line of defence against enemy aircraft. In
combination with Fighter Command's
Hurricanes and Spitfires, Robert
Watson-Watts' radar saved our bacon. We now get it from Denmark.
The Bawdsey radar base is still there, manned by volunteers as a sponsored tourist
attraction. It's worth visiting for its history, but it's really not very photogenic. But then
nor, I suppose, is this wreck of a fence...
