This is the earliest radar at Trimingham, it is an Army CD No1 MkIV (No M65) on a gantry on the roof of the typical CD Operations block (centre right) A small guardroom is at the gate barrier The shadow over the site is from the later 200 foot CHEL tower (K65) on the landward side of Mundersley Road. The Ops block was just to the west of the current Type 80 Modulator building.
