Rick at the Radar Station

On the moors between Hebden Bridge and Haworth, there's this utterly cool place that looks like something out of The X-Files: Oxenhope Moor Radar Station.

It was built during the Second World War, but is now owned by Bradford University, who use it for measuring the size of raindrops and the brightness of stars. Or so they would have us believe. There has been a spate of UFO sightings over Hebden Bridge in recent months, and people have started putting two and two together.

Bradford University recently announced that it will be demolishing the radar station. The good people of Hebden Bridge smell a conspiracy. What is it they don't want us to find out?

So, at 07:00 this morning, I headed up to the radar station looking for clues before they destroy the evidence. Here's what I came back with.

Trust no one. The truth is out there.

  1. I this supposed to be a black square (because it's still Feckin' dark at 7am) or am I missing something?

  2. This is a really interesting place to visit, I doubt however that any conspiracies are going on, the buildings have been empty for years, I have researched this place and found out that Bradford uni left there in the mid 90s and its been empty ever since.

    and the satellite equipment doesn't look like it has worked for a long time and will ever work again!!

    I do believe this was used in the cold war as an early warning station
