Bawdsey Radar

Closed for conservation and restoration.

Re-opening in September 2017.


Bawdsey Radar was an internationally-important centre of radar innovation and technology.

It was the birthplace of operational radar in 1937, and many people believe that the Battle of Britain could not have been won without it.

A new state-of-the-art visitor centre and interactive exhibition will tell the story - a testament to the importance of the work that went on at Bawdsey in the period preceding, during and immediately after the Second World War.
