Bawdsey RadarWelcome to Bawdsey Radar

Bawdsey Radar was formed by a group of local people in 2003. Its aim is to conserve the Transmitter Block and create a new exhibition for visitors to learn about the groundbreaking work that took place at Bawdsey.

Visit the Transmitter Block

The Transmitter Block on the Bawdsey Manor Estate is part of the world’s first operational RADAR station. Today it is open to visitors and houses an exhibition explaining the story of RADAR. Discover the team of scientists who developed RADAR and how their work helped win the Battle of Britain.
