Old Repeater Station, Grindon, near Haydon Bridge


The Old Repeater Station is located on the Military Road about 3 miles north of Haydon Bridge in Northumberland, near Grindon and Sewingshields. Repeater stations were used to boost the signal strength of telephone signals carried over long distances via copper wires. With advances in telecoms the repeater station was no longer needed and in 2004 the building was converted into a bed and breakfast accommodation, for visitors taking advantage of the location near the 'half way point' of Hadrian's Wall.
