RAF Bempton GCI (Ground Controlled Interception) Radar Station

Bempton was operational during the war years to detect enemy aircraft inbound to the east coast. Its' close proximity to the cliff edge gave maximum coverage.
After the war, the station carried on its' defensive responsibilities to Britain, forming part of the radar network of the whole country during the "Cold War".
