Archaeology Notes

NO31NE 85.01 c.3832 1589, c.3862 1585, c.3882 1591 and c. 3867 1611

A radio intercept station has been identified from large scale vertical air photographs (106G/Scot/UK 67, 5180-5183, Pt.II flown 8 May 1946), in an area about 400m E of Kingask farmsteading.

Visible on the photographs are four small structures, one set within a circular fence, the other three having an array of at least six short aerials around a hut or building. All structures were linked by a track to the farm track which runs from Kingask to Foxton farmsteadings.

There would appear to be little or no remains of this station.

The site is noted in publications about Station X, at Bletchley Park as being a 'Y' Intercept Station whch was opened after a similar one about 800m SW at Hawk Law (Hawklaw, NO31NE 66).
