Info from Wikipedia RRH Neatishead, is a Royal Air Force military radar station in the English county of Norfolk, East Anglia, and was established during the Second World War. It consists of the main technical site, and a number of remote, and sometimes unmanned sites. The primary function of Neatishead was as a "Control and Reporting Centre" (CRC) for the south of the United Kingdom; it forms a part of the UK's air defences - namely the UK "Air Surveillance And Control System" (ASACS), and is part of the larger NATO air defence. It uses radar, ground-to-air radio and digitally encrypted data links. On 16 February 1966 a fire broke out in the bunker, station fire teams were unsuccessful in putting the fire out and so civilian fire crews were called. 3 civilian firefighters lost their lives. Later that year LAC Cheeseman was sentenced to 7 years for starting the fire and causing the deaths. RRH Neatishead controls the remote site of RAF Trimingham with its Type 93 Radar. It also controls the site at RAF Weybourne with its two AEGIS aerials. Neatishead is adjacent to the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. In April 2004 the decision was taken to substantially reduce activities at Neatishead, and by 2006, the base had been downgraded to Remote Radar Head (RRH) status, but the museum remains open. The gate guardian, a Phantom previously based at RAF Wattisham, was cut up for scrap in 2005 despite interest from the Radar Museum. In October 2006 local media reported that a buyer had been found for the now disused section of the base. The 251/2 acres site was advertised again in January 2010, with an asking price of £4,000,000.

It is somewhat amusing to me that the main entrance is a big blast door, accessed via a guard bungalow (the mere presence of this bungalow tells me that it was actually originally a 1950's construction...)
While the emergency exists pictured seem to be nothing more than wiremesh over a steel frame door.edit on 25/9/2011 by BMorris because: typo correction
