Tyne and Wear HER(11723): Marsden, Man Haven, possible radar station - Details
Marsden, Man Haven, possible radar station
Military Observation Site
A possible Second World War radar station seen on vertical air photographs from 1941. The site comprises a large, circular ditched enclosure, with a structure at its centre. Several buildings were recorded in the vicinity. The site was recorded from poor quality photographs so the exact function and form of the site were difficult to determine. It seems likely that this was a military site as there is a bomb crater (HER 11729) close to the ditched enclosure, implying that it had been targeted by enemy aircraft.
