I think the place you're talking about is the Composite Signals Organisation ground station at Morwenstow.
The Composite Signals Organisation (CSO) has two other important outposts. One is on the rugged coastline of Cornwall, just south of Morwenstow at
Lower Sharpnose Point near Bude. This "Wireless Station" provides extra intercept capability for GCHQ. Go to Multimap's site to view the aerial
photo of GCHQ/CSO Morwenstow.
The other CSO site is deep inside English cider country, south of Taunton, Somerset, at the tiny hamlet of Culmhead near Churchstanton and has been
apparently closed down. Again, this "Wireless Station" has provided additional intercept capacity for GCHQ. Go to Multimap's site to view the
aerial photo with map overlay of GCHQ/CSO Culmhead. Most of the aerial mast assemblies at Culmhead have now been removed but a few remotely controlled
listening antennae remain! The address search facility on the Old Maps web site discreetly lists the secret base as simply "Cipher House, Culmhead,
All the CSO sites at Irton Moor, Morwenstow and Culmhead are inextricably entwined with the US Government's NSA.
