Twelve-sided structure housing the radar head of the Type 82 "Orange Yeoman” tactical control radar for use in conjunction with the Bloodhound guided-missile system.

RAF North Coates opened in 1918 and, after an illustrious career as a flying station, became a Bloodhound base in 1958.

This photograph was taken during a visit by SLHA members to record its demolition in 2002.

This interior shot of a Type 82 Building shows the mounting plates for the radar turning gear.

This radar was the operational prototype and it was the RAF's first 3-D radar to go into service.

It could track 18 targets simultaneously at a range of up to 140 miles.

St Nicholas’s church was rebuilt in 1865 by James Fowler of Louth in Early English style.

Within the church, Fowler retained the 13th century arcades, and the tower and chancel arches from the medieval church.
