Although the government has announced that museums can open, we’re not quite ready yet and so for now we’re staying under the radar.

We are putting plans in place that will help us make the right decision about when to open, and that decision will be made with the safety of volunteers and visitors as number one priority. When we do reopen we want to be able to offer the very best experience for everyone.

Thank you for staying in touch with Bawdsey Radar, and for your patience.

Please do get in touch or 07821 162879 with any questions you have.

Please do stay safe and we look forward to meeting again soon.

Summer holiday activities

Whilst the Transmitter Block is closed just now, here are some radar-related activities you can do with your family and friends.

There’s an activity sheet available each week of the school holidays, five in total, with a new one to try each week. Free and suitable for all the family – try a word search, identify some aircraft or make some paper planes.

Week Three has a theme:   Identification and Codes.  In World War Two being able to identify friendly or enemy aircraft was essential.  This week’s activities are available here.
