Archaeology Notes

NC91SE 32.10 96492 10143 and 96231 10065

Two large radar masts are visible on postwar RAF vertical air photographs (CPE/Scot/UK 225, 3426-3429, flown 27 June 1946) on Crackaig Links, immediately N of Lothbeg Point . The masts are part of the wartime development of this radar station.

The masts have been removed covering removed since 1946 as the four concrete blocks forming the bases are depicted on the current OS digital 1:2500 scale map. The mast bases are also visible on more recent Fairey Survey vertical air photographs (colour) , (Fairey Surveys Ltd, SDD Coastal strip, 42. 242- 42. 243, flown 28 May 1975).
