Former RAF Hack Green "secret" bunker. A WW2 "Chain Home"radarstation. After the war in the early 1950's converted into a then more modernized "Rotor" system radarsite. As of the mid 50's the stations role changed and it became part of the UK Air Traffic Control System, one of 4 joint civil/military Air Traffic Control Units.
The outdated station was closed in 1966 and now serves as a museum.
