WW2 Radar Station, Kinley Hill


A Chain Home Low Station (a type of radar for detecting low flying aircraft) known as CHL39A was established at Kinley Hill by 27th September 1941, during the Second World War. There are the remains of a number of buildings at the site, near Kinley Hill Farm. CHL sites were typically comprised of 2 gantries for the transmitter and receiver aerial arrays, a transmitter and receiver hut, a standby reserve power, and a general purposes hut. The stations also included light anti-aircraft gun emplacements, pillboxes, road blocks and air raid shelters.[1]
