Building Arthur

These images are taken from the BT Archive and show the demolition of the RAF Drytree radar buildings, and the construction of Aerial No.1, “Arthur”. The construction of Arthur was undertaken by the Cleveland Bridge & Engineering Company in December 1961. The building being destroyed is possibly a powerhouse for the radar base. All images are copyright British Telecommunications.
