Bawdsey Radar tells the story of the development of radar that helped win the Battle of Britain. The Transmitter Block at Bawdsey was the first operational radar station in the world and where men and women worked, in complete secrecy, on the frontline together.
The building itself, built in 1937, is now conserved for future generations and a new exhibition tells this untold story that played such an important part in British history.
